North Highlands Mother Fatally Shot

I’m Ed Smith, a North Highlands Personal Injury Lawyer. A young mother was shot to death on February 23, 2016 in her North Highlands home.

What Happened?

Investigators from the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department said the 23-year-old woman was found just after midnight. She resided in a home along the 3800 block of Galbreath Drive. Efforts to save her life were unsuccessful. The woman died at the scene as a result of a fatal gunshot wound to her upper body.

Who Did This?

A preliminary investigation revealed someone may have fired a weapon from outside of the house. At least one bullet hit the woman, according to deputies. It is still unclear if the gunman was inside a vehicle or walking nearby when the shots were fired.

Did Anyone Witness the Shooting?

The woman’s two young children, ages 1 and 4, were in the home during the shooting. No word if they witnessed the shooting. No suspects, motive or physical description of a shooter is available as of this writing. Deputies have questioned two people.
