SACRAMENTO COUNTY – Authorities are investigating after the Kaiser Permanente hospital building in Roseville was struck by gunfire Wednesday night. 

The Roseville Police Department says, just before 9 p.m., they got a report of shots fired from a vehicle in the area of Eureka Road and Douglas Boulevard. 

Officers responded to the scene and found that the Kaiser building was struck, police say; no one was hit and no injuries have been reported.

Roseville police say the scene is safe, but no suspect information was released. Kaiser officials confirmed to CBS13 a little after 10 p.m. that the lockdown at the hospital had been lifted.

The incident appears to have originated in Citrus Heights, according to Roseville police. The Sacramento County Sheriff's Office also confirmed they got reports of a shooting first in Citrus Heights, then in Roseville.

Citrus Heights police say they initially got a report around 8:46 p.m. about a suspect allegedly shooting multiple rounds in the area of the 8100 block of Auburn Boulevard. Multiple shell cases were found in that area, but police say no one was struck by the gunfire. 

Roseville police were then notified that the suspect was headed in their direction. Citrus Heights police say they believe both their incident and the Roseville shooting where the Kaiser was struck by gunfire are related. 

As of late Wednesday night, police say a suspect has still not been located. He is described as 30-year-old Jackson Pinney of Hayward. Authorities say he could be driving a 2002 Gold Ford F150 single-cab truck with California license place number 6V04299 or a white 1996 Acura Integra with California license plate 6FWU532.

The CHP says Pinney also made threats against the capitol on Thursday, which prompted a heightened safety response, including temporary evacuations.

Roseville is still reeling from the shooting just last week at Mahany Park that left a hostage dead and another hostage, along with a CHP officer, hurt. The suspect in that incident was arrested and his criminal record showed a lengthy history of run-ins with law enforcement
