Sacramento Teens Say Shooting Was Hate Crime
(CBS13) SACRAMENTO The brother of a shooting victim can't help but relive Thursday night's horror that unfolded before his eyes.
"My brother's bleeding on the kitchen floor can somebody please come help him," said the victim's brother.
Shortly after 9:30 pm, near Riverside Drive in the Pocket Area, five shots were fired as his 16-year-old brother, who was hit in the gut.
The victims didn't want to be identified, but they believe the shooting was racially motivated. The victim's brother and several young black youth were riding their bikes along the river bank on their way home. That's when he says they were confronted by several young white men and women in cars.
"After we left the river bank they passed us in their little SUV screaming ni***rs," said the victim's brother.
The confrontation got heated, but the youth kept riding their bikes home.
Police say it escalated after the suspects in their vehicles followed them home to their apartment complex. The kids on the bikes went inside, but one young 16-year-old stepped outside, and that's when he became a target.
"It was four white boys came through here and started shooting up the house and my brother and everything," said the victim's brother.
Not very many families were outside when the bullets started flying, and police say they need someone to step forward.
"We're looking for a red car with three to four male whites in it," said Sgt. Eric Walker, Sacramento Police.
The family says the 16-year-old is still in the hospital, and not doing very well.
