SACRAMENTO, CA - A man was shot and injured in a south Sacramento neighborhood Wednesday night.

Witnesses called police and reported hearing multiple gunshots near 14th Avenue and 45th Street around 9 p.m., Sacramento police Sgt. Michael Hijht said.

When police arrived, they found the man in the intersection. He had non-life threatening injuries. Officers also found multiple shell casings near the scene.

Hijht said the man was an innocent bystander in the shooting.

"It appears to be a random shooting," Hijht said.

Police found a gun in a trash can several blocks away and are searching for the suspected gunman in the area.

This was not a drive-by shooting, Hijht said.

Late Wednesday night, officers continued to interview witnesses and canvass several blocks in the area .
