Sheriff’s office said the woman was a resident of the facility, while the man appears to be a visitor. Their names have not been released, but deputies say the pair were a husband and wife.
Cindy Jorgensen tells CBS13 that her mother lives in the assisted living section of Aegis. Her mother just moved back in after being at the hospital. As her sister went to get something from the car, deputies converged on the parking lot.

Investigators have not detailed what led up to the shooting. But, a spokesperson did say that the investigators aren’t looking for suspects.
“Our homicide unit is out here with the detectives,” Sergeant Tess Deterding, Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson, said. “They’ll go through the same investigative steps that they would any other homicide incident.”
