Teen Shot, Killed In Santa Rosa Home

SANTA ROSA (CBS SF) — A 19-year-old man was fatally shot in the head at a residence in southwest Santa Rosa on Thursday night, police said.

At about 8:40 p.m. police received an emergency call from a resident in the 1200 block of Marble Street stating that someone had been shot in the head. When officers arrived at the scene, located about a block south of Cook School Park, they found a 19-year-old man lying on the floor inside a home.

Emergency medical personnel responded to the scene with the officers but the victim did not survive his wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Two teen boys, ages 16 and 17, were also at the home when police responded to the 911 call. The two teens were interviewed by detectives and later released.

Police said the victim is known to have ties to the Norteno street gang, but have not determined whether the homicide is gang-related.

His identity is being withheld until his next of kin is notified.

No suspects have been taken into custody and the shooting is being

investigated as a homicide.

Police said this is the third homicide in Santa Rosa since the Dec. 24, 2013 fatal stabbing of Nicholas Bloom near the downtown library.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to call the Santa Rosa Police Department’s Violent Crimes Investigations Team at (707) 543-3590.
