HOMICIDE IN RANCHO CORDOVA

Homicide detectives are investigating a murder which occurred in the 3200 block of Nosler Court in Rancho Cordova.

A little before 2:00 a.m. on January 1, 2016, the Sheriff’s Communication Center received a 911 call regarding someone shot.  Rancho Cordova Police officers responded to the scene and located the 23 year old male victim on the ground outside of a residence.  Officers immediately began life saving measures.  Sacramento Metro Fire responded to the scene, and transported the victim to the hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

Investigators have learned that a small party was being held at the residence.  The party was in the process of breaking up when some sort of dispute occurred outside the residence.  At some point, someone produced a gun and shot the victim.

The identity of the victim in this case will be made available by the Sacramento County Coroner’s office, after notification has been made to his next of kin.
