Walnut Grove home invasion robbery victim is identified by coroner

The man who was shot and killed Thursday during a home invasion robbery in Walnut Grove has been identified by the coroner.

The Sacramento County Coroner’s website lists his name as Thomas Rehberg, 40, of Walnut Grove.

Sacramento County sheriff's deputies responded about 10:30 a.m. to a 911 call reporting that a man had been shot at a residence in the 14200 block of River Road.

An investigation revealed that Rehberg and another person were in the home when two men knocked at the front door. After the door was opened, two intruders rushed in.

The surviving resident of the home was tied up. It is believed that more than two people might have entered the residence.

At some point during the home invasion, Rehberg was found in another room by the intruders and shot to death. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
