The man shot and killed in broad daylight Saturday outside a Rancho Cordova apartment complex was identified Sunday as 19-year-old Albert Alexander.
Alexander, of Sacramento, was shot about 2:40 p.m. Saturday near the front of a gated apartment complex with tan walls in the 9800 block of Lincoln Village Way.
The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deparment reported receiving calls at 2:43 p.m. from witnesses who reported hearing several gunshots in the area. When deputies arrived, spokeswoman Sgt. Lisa Bowman said, they found a man who had been shot.
Witnesses said they saw the man speaking with someone inside a light-colored sedan before the gunfire began, Bowman said, but the car drove off before deputies arrived.
