SACRAMENTO -- Family and friends of 15-year-old Raul Guerra are heartbroken.

Someone stabbed the El Camino High teen two weeks ago, and he was immediately placed on life support.

"On the 21st, he succumbed to his injuries at the hospital, unfortunately," Sacramento Sheriff's Sgt. Tony Turnbull said.

Raul's mother, Jasmine Fisher, says that her son died senselessly but gave his life on Thanksgiving Day to three others, with the donation of his organs.

She was too distraught to talk on camera but made a plea to anyone who might know who killed her son.

Homicide detectives have been on the case since the beginning and need the public’s help to make an arrest.

"There's several leads they're following. But we can always use the public's help if anybody has information on who may be responsible for hits, or who was involved," Turnbull said.

Raul was stabbed when two groups clashed after a car was seen doing doughnuts outside of the Goodwill docking area along Alta Arden.

"They ended up getting physical. That's the motive of this whole thing. During that altercation, is when the stabbings occurred."

Turnbull said any homicide they investigate is tragic, but it’s even more difficult when the victim is a teen who's been described as a good kid.

"He had a lot of life ahead of him. Hard especially for the family and around the holidays. It's something that you'll never forget," Turnbull added.
