Sacramento man identified as victim in Olivehurst homicide

A 30-year-old Sacramento man has been identified as the victim of Wednesday's fatal shooting in Olivehurst.

Burhan Ahmed died after he was allegedly shot by 24-year-old Sayer Stephen Daniels of Oroville, according to a Yuba County Sheriff's Office news release. Daniels then reportedly turned the gun on himself and remained hospitalized in critical condition Thursday.

Ahmed has family in the Yuba County area and the two men were acquaintances, but the extent of their relationship and the motive for the shooting are still under investigation, the news release said.

The shooting occurred about 12:30 p.m. Daniels allegedly opened fire on Ahmed in a gas station parking lot in the 1900 block of McGowan Parkway, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Daniels reportedly chased Ahmed on foot while firing a handgun at close range. Ahmed was hit by gunfire but continued to run into a Dollar General store east of the gas station and was followed by Daniels, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Ahmed made his way to the back of the store and out a side door, where he collapsed. Daniels remained inside the store, where he shot himself, the news release said.

Ahmed suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at a Sacramento-area hospital.

An autopsy is scheduled for Friday morning, according to the Sheriff's Office
