The Sacramento Police Department is investigating the homicide of a 16-year-old male.

He has been identified by the family as Isaiah Diaz.

Saturday around 1:37 a.m. they received a call regarding a shooting that happened outside in the 7400 block of 17th Avenue.

Before officers arrived family members transported the victim to a local hospital, from there he was transported to a trauma center where he died from his injuries.

Homicide detectives and gang detectives combed the area for evidence. The crime does not appear to be a random act but no motive has been determined.

No arrests have been made; Sac PD asks that anyone with information call dispatch at (916) 264-5471.
