WEST HIGHLANDS, Calif. (AP) - Sheriff's officials say a 10-year-old girl is dead and her parents are hospitalized after gunmen walked up to the front door of a home in the North Highlands area of Sacramento County and started shooting.
Sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Jason Ramos says the girl and her parents were inside their home on the 6300 block of Channing Drive when at least two gunmen went to the door and opened fire around 10:30 p.m. Saturday.
Ramos says at least a dozen shots were fired from at least two guns. The girl's parents - both in their 40s - suffered non-life threatening wounds, but the girl died after being taken to a hospital.
Their names have not been released.
Detectives were canvassing the neighborhood and CSI units were at the home Sunday gathering evidence, while investigators were asking anybody who might have information on the shooting to come forward.
