On April 17, 2012, shortly after 9:00 p.m., Sheriff’s deputies and Rancho Cordova police officers responded to the area of Campana Way and Biscay Way regarding a person who had been shot. Upon arrival they discovered a male, who appeared to be in his teens, unresponsive. He had sustained a gunshot wound to his upper body. The victim (whose identity remains unknown) was transported to an area hospital, and died of his injury approximately an hour later.

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