Tenderloin shooting victim questioned in connection with Sacramento homicide

A 23-year-old man who police thought was the victim of a shooting in the Tenderloin was in fact a person of interest in a Sacramento homicide, say police.

Police thought the man was the victim of a shooting at about 9:59 p.m. Monday at the intersection of Golden Gate Avenue and Jones Street in the Tenderloin.

Blood was found at the scene by police soon after shots were heard, but the victim was not found.

Later that night the 23-year-old victim walked into San Francisco General Hospital and told police he’d been shot, but would not say more.

He was shot in the elbow and the knee.

But after further investigation police discovered that he may have been injured during the homicide he was allegedly connected to. He was not the victim of a shooting in the Tenderloin.

Sacramento police have since interviewed the man.

The homicide in questioned occurred Sept. 28 on the 3600 block of Truxel Road in Sacramento, according to Sacramento police.

Walter Michael Gibson was found with gunshot wounds near a Home Depot on Truxel Road, according to KCRA television.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.
