A 9-11 call for help was cut short when a man contacted Sheriff deputies for help around 2 a.m. Saturday. The man reported that a woman pulled a gun on him and that he was following that woman and another woman in a vehicle.

During that call, deputies at the call center could hear gunshots in the background, and then the line was disconnected.

Twenty minutes later, deputies responded to the intersection of Predial Way and Essence Way. When they arrived on scene, they discovered the victim, who had sustained numerous gunshot wounds to his upper body. Paramedics pronounced the victim deceased at the scene.

As the investigation continues, sheriff’s have not determined a motive. Anyone with information is urged to call the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at (916)-874-5115.
