Neighbor Recounts Chaos Following Birthday Party Shooting
News from CBS Local:

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Police say there were around 30 children attending a 1-year-old’s birthday party at Peregrine Park, along with 30 adults.

But when dozens of shots rang out, people had nowhere to run – so many ran for cover to the nearest home.

“We thought it was firecrackers going off … then we heard people screaming,” said a neighbor who did not want to be identified.

A day later, food and decorations were still strewn about the park – left there when the gunfire suddenly erupted.

A man in his 20′s was killed; six others were hurt, including a 7-year-old girl shot in the leg.

“I looked out the peep hole and saw a couple of kids, maybe a 5-year-old and some teenagers kind of trying to hide behind the cement post there. So I opened the door and ushered them in,” the neighbor said.

The neighbor did not want to show her face on camera because police believe the shooting may be gang related. She said several kids and mothers holding babies fled to her home for safety. She opened her door to them as she called 911.

“You can’t leave them out in a dangerous situation like that. You get them in and get them back away from the doors,” she said.
