Update: Jonathan Jahquan Pierce, 19, was identified Dec. 26, 2016, as a suspect in the shooting death of a 23-year-old man at a gas station in the 2100 block of El Camino Avenue. The shooting occurred Dec. 12, 2016.

A man who was shot in the head Monday afternoon at a gas station in Arden Arcade has died.

The man, in his early 20s, was found about 3:50 p.m. Monday bleeding from the head at the Beacon gas station in the 2100 block of El Camino Avenue.

Sacramento County sheriff’s deputies learned that the man came to the gas station with a friend. Witnesses also told deputies that they heard one gunshot and then saw a dark sport-utility vehicle or truck drive off.

Deputies attempted to save the wounded man, who was still breathing and had a faint pulse. He was taken to a hospital, where he died at 11 p.m. Monday.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Tony Turnbull said deputies had not learned a motive for the killing. Detectives were investigating.

The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office has not released the man’s name.
