Man dies of injuries from Florin-area shooting five days earlier

A 35-year-old Sacramento man died last weekend as a result of gunshot wounds he suffered in the Florin area five days earlier, according to authorities.

Roderick Alexander died Saturday afternoon, according to the Sacramento County Coroner's Office.

No arrests have been made in the shooting, which is being investigated by detectives.

When acquaintances drove Alexander to the UC Davis Medical Center on Oct. 22 with gunshot wounds, hospital staff members contacted the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department, said sheriff's Sgt. Jason Ramos.

Detectives later determined the shooting occurred in the area of Austell and Moorhaven ways, near Power Inn and Gerber roads.

Ramos said detectives are investigating the motive for the shooting and looking for a suspect. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call the Sheriff's Department at (916) 874-5115 or Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP.
