A man was discovered with a fatal gunshot wound in South Sacramento Sunday morning and investigators are hoping the public can help identify a suspect.
Sacramento County sheriff’s deputies arrived at a home along Cottontree Way Sunday around 12:15 a.m. where they found the 37-year-old man laying in the home’s front yard with a gunshot wound to his upper body.
The man was quickly transported to a nearby hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
The investigation suggests the man may have gotten into an argument with someone while at a party at the Cottontree Way home, per deputies.
Some people were asked to leave the home, investigators said, and several minutes later multiple gunshots were fired from a light-colored sedan.
The victim was apparently struck by that gunfire, according to deputies.
Investigators believe the suspect car drove away south along Renton Way after the shooting; however, no one has been identified at this time.
