A: No arrests have been reported in the drive-by shooting that led to the death of 20-year-old Jose Johnson on Oct. 12, 2003.

According to a story in The Sacramento Bee, Johnson and a friend were walking near Franklin Boulevard and Cuny Avenue in south Sacramento County about 2 p.m. when two men in a black Honda Civic drove by and fired a gun, hitting Johnson in the upper torso.

Johnson, a Sacramento resident, was taken to UC Davis Medical Center, where he died about three hours later.

Sacramento County sheriff’s officials said at the time that they were concerned the shooting might have been a retaliatory act in gang-related activity.
