SACRAMENTO – Police said they investigated another Memorial Day shooting in the south Sacramento area overnight.

Sacramento police confirmed that, a little before 11:30 p.m., officers responded near La Fresca Court and Franklin Boulevard to investigate reports of gunfire.

At the scene, officers found a man who had been shot. That man was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive, police said.
