On Tuesday, September 11, 2018, at 8:37 pm, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department Communication Center received a call in the area of Coloma Road and Vehicle Drive regarding a shooting.  Rancho Cordova Police Officers immediately responded to the scene and upon arrival, they located the victim who had sustained at least one gunshot wound to the upper body.

Officers attempted life-saving measures on the victim but unfortunately, those efforts were unsuccessful.
