Family, Friends Mourn Dancer Killed In Downtown Shooting

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Police still have no suspects in connection with a shooting in midtown Sacramento early Saturday morning that killed one man.

Thirty-two-year-old Joseph Long was shot and killed as he was walking two teenage dancers to their car following a swing dancing event.

Police say two groups got into an argument in a parking lot at J and 28th Streets and started shooting at each other. That’s when Long was hit by a stray bullet.

“I don’t feel anger against those people. I hope they are brought to justice and realize what they did, and take ownership,” said friend Stephanie Kline, a friend of Long.

Authorities are urging anyone with information to contact the Sacramento Police Department at (916) 264-5471 or Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP (4357). You can also text in a tip to 274637 (CRIMES), enter SACTIP followed by the tip information.

Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
