Man Commits Suicide at Sacramento International Airport Parking After 911 Report of Shooter

A guy killed himself with two gunshots at Sacramento International Airport on Wednesday night. This happened after 911 calls were made about a possible shooter in the parking structure.

Sgt. Amar Gandhi, a spokeswoman for the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, said that the gunman fired two shots just before 9 p.m. from inside a parked truck in the parking structure across the street from Terminal A. Initial reports from the officers said that the rounds were inside the car.

No one else was hurt, Gandhi said.

Scott Johnson, a spokeswoman for the county, said that there were no delays in movement or operations in either of the two main passenger terminals. The flight-tracking website FlightAware also said that air traffic operations at California’s sixth-busiest airport were normal at 9 p.m.

Johnson said that travelers and cars were rerouted away from Terminal A for a short time and that Terminal B was “operating without incident.” There are planes from United, Delta, American, and Air Canada at Terminal A.

Shortly before 9:30 p.m., Gandhi said that police had found the suspect dead in the car. It looked like he had shot himself.

Gandhi told reporters that the investigation was just getting started, but that the first 911 calls suggested that there might be a killing going on, but the man wasn’t known to the Sheriff’s Office.

As deputies moved toward a suspect car, a white Ford F-150, shots were fired from inside the truck.
