SACRAMENTO -- Deputies responded to an Arden-Arcade home Sunday morning, where a caller reported finding a man lying dead in the front yard.

The man, who was in his late 30s, had a gunshot wound and was pronounced dead at the scene on Edison Avenue, near the intersection of Bell Street..

"[I] bent down and checked his pulse on his neck -- and it was completely visible so I didn't have to dig -- so I just put my hand where I should nothing absolutely nothing," said neighbor Delia Pisi.

Around 2:30 a.m., nearly 5 hours prior to the discovery of the man's body, deputies responded to the area after someone reported hearing gunshots. No evidence of a shooting was found upon the deputies' arrival, according to the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department.

FOX40 spoke with the victim's mother-in -law who says the victim's name is Jason. She said he has two kids, one is a teenager, the other a one-year-old.

"He was very nice we always spoke he always said nice things he was a great guy," Rachel Clemente, an acquaintance of the victim.  

An elementary school, church and park all surround the area of the apparent shooting.

No motive or suspects have been uncovered by officials.
