On Friday, October 28, 2022, at approximately 9:08 pm, our Sheriff’s Communications Center received a call in the 3700 block of Lenore Way regarding a shooting that just occurred.  The caller advised they heard gunshots and observed a male lying in their front yard.

Deputies responded and located a male juvenile, later determined to be 14 years old, lying on the front lawn of the dispatched residence suffering from at least one gunshot wound.  Deputies began performing life-saving measures on the victim while awaiting fire personnel.  Sacramento Metro Fire arrived a short time later and pronounced the subject deceased at the scene.

Detectives and Crime Scene investigators responded to the scene, gathered evidence and interviewed witnesses.  It is unclear what led up to the incident.  No further information or suspect information is available at this time.

The identity of the victim, in this case, will be released by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office after identification and notification of next of kin.

Detectives are asking anyone with information relating to this incident, to please contact the Sheriff’s Office at (916) 874-5115 or Sacramento Valley Crime Stoppers at (916) 443-HELP. Tip information may also be left anonymously at or by calling (916) 874-TIPS (8477).
