Sacramento County Sheriff's Department spokesman Dep. Jason Ramos said around 5:19 p.m., the 20-year-old was confronted by a black male with a gun.

"The suspect demanded money from the victim and then shot him in the neck before running away on foot," Ramos said in an email. "Suspect [is] described as a black male, 16-18, with a hoodie on. He is still being sought."

Ramos said the victim was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive.

can you get rid of the ones that give away my home, please?
Legion, The Many March 28, 2012 at 06:43 PM
So you're just ignoring all the comments about people being glad he survived, and hoping he's doing well. It's a horrible thing to have happen, but isn't horribly surprising. Pull your head out your rear-end.
Legion, The Many March 28, 2012 at 06:44 PM
This is such bull. People know you, people know your history.
Linda March 28, 2012 at 06:50 PM
Yes Cody if you could get rid of the comments on which said where his home his, I would do it myself but I can't figure out how to delete them. Shooting victim that was my intention and I'm extremely sorry and I hope you have a full recovery and they find out who did this to you!
Linda March 28, 2012 at 06:51 PM
That wasn't my intention***
Shooting Victim March 28, 2012 at 06:54 PM
Thats what it is my HISTORY, My PAST. Here everyone, over a year ago i smoked pot with my friends, never anything more than it. i didnt sell it to anyone ever. I did it socially with my friends only. None of us have anything to do with the stuff anymore. What happened had nothing to do with drugs what so ever we were simply robbed then i was shot. Who knows mabey it was a gang thing, but i have done nothing wrong and want nothing more but to be left alone and try to get back to having a normal life. Please Stop.
Legion, The Many March 28, 2012 at 06:55 PM
Over a year ago. Sure.
Linda March 28, 2012 at 06:56 PM
Well said shooting victim get your life back stay safe and choose wisely who your friends are!
Thomas Gavinson March 28, 2012 at 08:22 PM
Okay enough Dvpena13 and Legion your conversation has nothing to do with the situation at hand, althought dating someone with clap is disgusting. Anyways keep your foul language and your highschool drama out of this. This is a drug deal gone bad / attempted murder case/ robbery! The community doesn't need to know about your highschool past or who your dating or what disease they may have Dcpena13
Vet March 28, 2012 at 10:12 PM
Over a year ago...i know for a fact ive seen you smoke a hell of alot more recently. You keep saying your completly innocent, but i know otherwise. Your the kind of guy who is buddy buddy with someone, then dice them up behind their back. Im not saying you deserve to die, and im not saying that the shooting was a drug deal gone bad. But lies are still lies. And dont know where tango is? You've lived in the same place for well over 10a years. Thats kinda of stretchong it.
Thomas Gavinson March 28, 2012 at 10:17 PM
So your dcpena13 your calling your speeding in the neighborhood 60+ mph a stupid thing?? Your ignorant your going to run a young child over playing in the street going that speed and to you it will probably still be a stupid thing! I've had enough of you get over yourself!!
Vet March 28, 2012 at 10:30 PM
@thomas gavinson Of course he thinks its silly. The young ones tend to think that way. Hell, im 23 myself, but i dont abide by this idiocy. I learned the hard way about life. I have matured because of it. But kids dont learn. And i will call @depena13 a child. He doesn't consider the repercussions of his actions.
Legion, The Many March 28, 2012 at 10:34 PM
Finally, someone else who knows more about these people than they let surface. I commend you sir. Thinking they can lie about their actions is ridiculous when they know very well what they do. The statements they make are riddled with lies.
Thomas Gavinson March 28, 2012 at 10:35 PM
Vet I couldn't agree with you anymore, young males these days need to grow up they are still acting childish and don't care about the repercussions that come out of their actions! And yet again we have another person coming forward about the victim and his drug use! No he didn't deserve to get shot, but he should tell the truth lying isn't a joke ecspecially in a matter like this! Dcpena13 I hope Linda indeed turned you in for your speeding rosemont is a neighborhood not your personal race track!
Thomas Gavinson March 28, 2012 at 10:37 PM
Vet do you know dcpena13?? What's this fellas name, if you don't mind me asking?
Vet March 28, 2012 at 10:42 PM
@Thomas Gavinson It really is a shame. The values i was broight up with are the same values the military pounded into you. Honor, responsibilty, self respect, discapline. They play big roles in life. Another thing the army tought me? If a situation seems fishy, 9 times out of 10 it is.
Vet March 28, 2012 at 10:43 PM
I dont know him...i know the victim.
Vet March 28, 2012 at 10:48 PM
And i make it a habit not to give personal info of others over the net. Its OPSEC (operational security) training, and its not kosher.
Thomas Gavinson March 28, 2012 at 10:51 PM
Vet I agree with you and respect that 100%, you being 23yrs old and your maturity is a huge step up from what we are finding with these young males on here. Shows that there's still hope for the young people out there to change and act the way they should be acting!
Vet March 28, 2012 at 10:54 PM
One can hope its where most young adults are headed...unfortunatly, most follow the "cool" scene or go for cheap thrills. Id much prefer a hard days work. It makes fun times much more enjoyable.
Thomas Gavinson March 28, 2012 at 10:59 PM
And that's the problem, seems as if the victim was following the cool crowd! Doing and possibly selling drugs is not cool your cheating yourself out of life. Things you've earned feel better when you put all your hard work into it. Lying and drugs get you know where, they put you in danger which maybe this case here! Vet if I understood right your in the army? If so I thank you for defending and serving our country!! It's people like you who make a difference!
Vet March 28, 2012 at 11:16 PM
Im no longer in the army, ive been injured several times, and unstead of staying in (and causing other soldiers to pick up the slack i create) i opted to get out. But i appreciate it.
Vet March 28, 2012 at 11:19 PM
@Legion, The Many I just tell it as it is, but thanks /b/ro
Legion, The Many March 28, 2012 at 11:20 PM
There needs to be more people willing to do so.
Thomas Gavinson March 28, 2012 at 11:23 PM
Vet even though your not in the army anymore you still did the right thing and I appreciate your hard work. Sorry to hear about your injuries hope you've made a full recovery! Best of luck to you in life, seems you have the maturity and will power to make something out of yourself!
Legion, The Many March 28, 2012 at 11:45 PM
Also... I see what you did there.
Vet March 29, 2012 at 12:01 AM
@Legion, The Many, i figured you would. Thanks thomas, i do try
Legion, The Many March 29, 2012 at 12:04 AM
That aside, props to you for being a decent human-being.
Thomas Gavinson March 29, 2012 at 12:07 AM
No problem Vet good to know we have some mature young people in our community, thanks for coming foward with your opinion and information about the victim things seem a little fishy here! And like you said the army tought you if things seem fishy, 9 out of 10 times they are.
