Investigation continues into Cirby Way shooting
By: Eric Laughlin, The Press Tribune
Roseville police detectives are still searching for a man who shot an employee of a weight loss clinic at Cirby Way and Sunrise Avenue Wednesday evening. The employee of Absolute Weight Loss Clinic, said to be in his 50s, was reportedly locking up the business at around 7:45 p.m., when an Hispanic man approached him from the parking lot. An argument ensued and the suspect reportedly shot the employee twice, causing him to collapse in front of a VCR repair store. He was taken to a Sutter Roseville Medical Center with injuries to his abdomen, but the wounds were not thought to be life threatening. Witnesses were unable to estimate the Hispanic suspect's age, but he was described as being approximately 5-foot, 8-inches tall, 150 pounds, and wearing a red or dark orange hooded sweatshirt and jeans. Investigators have yet to determine a motive or whether or not the two men knew each other. Anyone with information regarding the suspect is asked to call Roseville Crimestoppers at 783-STOP. A cash reward could apply for callers providing information leading to an arrest.
