The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office has identified the man killed Tuesday morning in Oak Park as 58-year-old Michael Anderson of Sacramento.

Anderson was shot several times about 1:15 a.m. near the corner of San Carlos Way and Eighth Avenue. The Sacramento Police Department has yet to arrest his shooter after searching the surrounding neighborhood Tuesday.

A neighbor reported Anderson cried, “Why did this happen to me?” while he was bleeding on the sidewalk. He died about 4 a.m. at an area hospital.

Another neighbor said he counted at least seven rounds being fired in the shooting. There is no evidence the shooting was gang-related, police said.
