Body in bullet-riddled car discovered in Rancho park

A man was found shot to death this morning, slumped over in the driver's seat of his still-idling car in a Rancho Cordova park.

The man's body was found in the car in Hagan Community Park about 6 a.m. by a citizen who noticed the car stopped with its lights on partially in the roadway that winds through the park.

The citizen got out of his vehicle and noticed numerous bullet holes in the driver's side door and the side window shattered.

It appears that the victim's foot and weight on the brake brought his car to a stop in the roadway. The car was in gear and running.

The driver was dead from several gunshot wounds to the upper body, said Sheriff's Department Deputy Jason Ramos, spokesman for the Rancho Cordova police department.

No suspect information was being released.
