A man discovered two people on fire in front of his home in Roseville. On Thursday night at about 11:20 p.m., residents on the 3700 block of Annabelle Avenue heard what they thought to be gunshots. After hearing the shots, one of the residents subsequently heard a loud noise and went outside his home to investigate. The resident was met with a fire burning on a gravel parking area in front of his home. He attempted to put out the flames only to make the gruesome discovery that two men were burning.
Emergency personnel were dispatched and arrived to find both men were still alive but suffered gunshot wounds to the head. One of the men was shot once. The second victim took two bullet wounds to the head. Both men have life-threatening injuries and were transported to areas hospitals. One victim was taken to U.C. Davis Medical Center, and the other was rushed to Sutter Roseville Medical Center. According to Placer County Sheriff’s Office, as of 10:30 this morning both men were still alive.
Although the investigation is in its early stages, Placer County Sheriff’s deputies do know the identity of the victims. Both men are from Sacramento and appear to have no connection to the neighborhood, and were likely brought there by their assailants.
