Sacramento police say a woman is dead this morning from what appears to be gunshot wound.

Police spokesman Doug Morse says she was found inside a business in the 5600 block of 28th Street.

"There was some blood in the area of the victim and she was pronounced deceased by fire personnel," he said. 

Morse says a "person of interest" was seen running from the scene.  He's described a "black man." He may be armed and on the loose on Fruitridge Road.

A resident nearby says the business was a private security company. Witnesses say they heard one gunshot.
