Upon arrival, deputies contacted 29 year old Thomas Crossland who, was found to have a gunshot wound to his leg. Crossland was transported via ambulance to an area hospital for treatment of the non-life threatening wound.

Prior to arrival at the incident location, witnesses reported a white male only identified by first name, “Chris” fled the location immediately after the shooting in a gold colored Ford F-150 pick-up. During a search of the surrounding area, utilizing a California Highway Patrol helicopter and ground units from local law-enforcement agencies, the pick-up was located, unoccupied and disabled in an ACID canal which, was in close proximity to Green Acres Drive and adjacent to the Sacramento River.
