Published: Saturday, May. 11, 2013 - 10:36 am

A man was shot to death late Friday in Rio Linda, authorities said.

The incident happened shortly before 10:15 p.m. at the 6800 block of Radalyac Court. Sacramento County sheriff's deputies arrived to find a black male inside a home "with at least one gunshot wound to his upper body," according to reports. Emergency personnel pronounced the man dead at the scene.

Two men found at the home were detained for questioning. They reported to police that two or three vehicles were seen speeding away from the house after the shooting, though it was unclear if the occupants of the vehicles were related to the incident.

The identity of the victim, who appeared to be in his 20s, has not been released pending notification of his family.

No suspects have been identified and the motive is still unknown. Anyone with information pertaining about this incident is asked to contact the Sheriff's homicide detectives at (916) 874-5115.
