The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office on Monday identified a man whose body was found inside a marijuana-growing operation as Jessie Orozco, 32, of Sacramento.

Orozco was shot in his upper torso, authorities said. He was pronounced dead at the home in the 5500 block of Enrico Boulevard near Fruitridge Road on Friday. He appeared to have been dead for several hours, officials said.

A spokesman for the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department said the house had a “marijuana cultivation operation.”
