CITRUS HEIGHTS (CBS13) – A man is in custody for attempted murder and another is in recovery after being shot in the head in Citrus Heights Friday night, police said.
According to the Citrus Heights Police Department, 9-1-1 calls were received at around 9:40 p.m. for a shooting that happened at a restaurant along Greenback Lane.
The victim suffered a single gunshot wound to the head, but he is in the hospital expected to survive.
Police said the victim and suspect – later identified as Miguel Angel Garcia-Rocio, 38 – were involved in a dispute when Garcia-Rocio allegedly shot the man.
