On Tuesday, February 9, 2010 at 10:27 p.m., the Elk Grove Police Department responded to a call regarding a shooting victim inside a residence in the 6900 block of Frankfort Court.

Upon arrival, officers discovered that 19-year-old Anthony Arroyo was suffering from a single gun shot wound to the chest. The injury was non-life threatening and Arroyo was transported to a local area hospital for treatment.

During the course of the investigation, officers determined that Arroyo was walking in the area of the Laguna Community Park when he was approached by three unidentified males. One of the unidentified individuals pulled out a handgun and fired at Arroyo.
