Investigators are trying to sort things out after four people were shot and killed in a Sacramento home last night. After officers were called to the home on the 7600 block of 18th Street around 10:40 yesterday they found three men and one woman in the home dead of apparent gunshot wounds, says Sacramento police spokeswoman officer Michelle Gigante.

Gigante says a fifth person, who investigators have identified as a suspect, was wounded, apparently by someone in the home who confronted the suspect. Initially, police had described the killings as taking place during a home invasion, but Gigante says investigators don't know the motive though they have determined that some gang members were involved. The names of the victims or of the wounded suspect have not been released. (Read more home invasion stories.)
