The victim was in the area when an argument ensued with two unknown suspects. One suspect armed with a handgun shot the victim and fled. Sacramento Fire personnel responded to the scene and transported the victim to an area hospital for a serious, but non-life threatening injury. Officers checked the area for the suspects. The investigation remains very active and no arrests have been made at this time.

Chando, the owner of the beloved Mexican restaurant, provided additional details on Facebook Friday morning:


While we're on the topic of the restaurant, Chandos Tacos also announced a price increase due, in part, to the the minimum wage hike that took effect on Jan. 1.
