The man fatally shot outside a south Sacramento house party Sunday morning has been identified by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office as Larry Cardell Ragsdale, 37, of Sacramento.

The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department responded at 12:15 a.m. Sunday to a report that a man had been shot on the 7500 block of Cottontree Way. Deputies found Ragsdale in the front yard of the home where the party was held with a gunshot wound to his upper body. He was taken to a hospital, where he died.

According to deputies’ investigations, Ragsdale was shot from a light-colored sedan a few minutes after some partygoers had been asked to leave following a dispute. The sedan fled the scene heading south toward Renton Way, the Sheriff’s Department said.
