SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- A mother loading her 2-year-old child into an SUV was killed Tuesday and five others were wounded in a gunbattle at a strip mall in south Sacramento, police said.
Two men were in a barber shop just before 1 p.m. when two other men came in and started shooting, sheriff's Sgt. Tim Curran said.
The men in the barber shop were armed and returned fire, Curran said.
The gunbattle apparently moved into the parking lot, where Curran said a bullet struck the mother. The child was unhurt.
At least one person with a gunshot wound was taken to a hospital.
