PLACER COUNTY -- The Placer County Sheriff's Department is looking for witnesses after an 18-year-old was shot and found outside a party overnight Saturday.

Just after midnight authorities were called to a party in a commercial business complex on Tinker Road in unincorporated Rocklin for a shooting.

When deputies arrived they say the scene was chaotic and many people were fleeing for safety.

Elk Grove resident Roderick Donell Totton, 18, was found outside the party suffering from a gunshot wound. Totton was transferred to Sutter Roseville Medical Center where he later died.

Authorities say the party was heavily promoted on social media.

During the day, a gym called Free Flow Academy is held in the Tinker Road complex. The gym staff did confirm that they had a party there, but they would not elaborate.

Detectives are asking anyone with information to call them at 530-889-7844.
