Sacramento County sheriff’s homicide detectives are asking the public’s help in identifying suspects in the May 16 shooting death of a 19-year-old man in Lincoln Village.

The shooting occurred in the 9800 block of Lincoln Village Drive. The victim, identified as Albert Alexander, was seen talking with the occupants of a vehicle, possibly a rental car, when one of the suspects pulled out a handgun and shot Alexander, according to a Sheriff’s Department news release.

The Sheriff’s Department released composite sketches of one the the suspects. He is described as black, in his 20s, with long dreadlocks and wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt at the time of the shooting.

Photographs of the suspect vehicle were captured by a nearby surveillance camera moments before the shooting, sheriff’s officials said. They noted that the quality of the video did not provide a clear view of the license plate. The vehicle is described as a light gray or silver 2015 Hyundai Sonata four-door sedan. Sheriff’s officials said it appeared to be a stock model, with no additional window tint. A shark fin antenna was attached to the center of the rear window near the roof line.

Sheriff’s officials said they do not know the relationship between the victim and the suspects.

Detectives ask anyone with information regarding the identity of suspects or the whereabouts of the vehicle to call the Sheriff’s Department at 916-874-5115, or Crime Alert at 916-443-4357. Tip information also may be left anonymously via the Sheriff’ Department’s website, by texting 274637 and entering the keyword “SSD,” or by calling 916-874-8477.
