Sacramento police have located the truck used as a getaway vehicle in today's early morning shooting in North Sacramento.

A 20-year-old was shot and killed around 2 a.m. after an argument broke out between two groups on Del Paso Boulevard, Sacramento police reported.

The suspect, described as an African American male in his 30s, fled in a white 2000 Ford F150 with the license plate 8K45096, said Sgt. Andrew Pettit, police spokesman.

Police later found the truck unoccupied near the shooting scene.

The victim, described as an Asian male, was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Del Paso Boulevard was closed for more than hours in the area of Fairfield Street, where the shooting occurred.

The nature of the argument and motive for the shooting is still under investigation.
