A man who was fatally shot Sunday afternoon in a south Sacramento park has been identified by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office as Ernie Jessey Cadena, 49, of Sacramento.

The shooting occurred at about 2:30 p.m. Sunday at Meadowview Park, where, according to witness statements, the victims were being filmed for a music video. Cadena was among five people police found with gunshot wounds, all of whom were taken to the hospital.

Cadena was pronounced dead at the hospital, while the other four victims were listed in stable condition.

Police have yet to determine a motive for the crime but are investigating whether it is gang-related, a press release from the Sacramento Police Department said.
