Burglary suspect shoots homeowner with firearm 'likely' found in gun safe, Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office says

A homeowner was shot early Monday with a firearm that a burglary suspect "most likely" found in a gun safe, according to the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office. The homeowner died at the hospital hours later, officials said. The shooting happened on the 4100 block of Greenlawn Way in North Highlands. Officials said the suspect was in the area burglarizing vehicles, when he made his way into a nearby backyard and inside a detached structure. Inside that structure, the suspect found a gun safe and multiple firearms were taken, the sheriff’s office said. It’s not clear if the gun safe had been locked or broken into.
