Rancho Cordova motorist dies of gunshot wound

A Rancho Cordova man shot in his car on Wednesday has died, according to the Sacramento County Coroner's office.

Lucas Esteban-Enrique, 29, was found behind the wheel of his car near the intersection of White Rock Road and Laurelhurst Drive about 8 a.m. Wednesday. When deputies arrived on the scene they found Esteban-Enrique's car stopped against a curb.

He was unresponsive behind the wheel and when paramedics removed him from the car it was discovered he had a gunshot wound. He was transported to a hospital and died at 6:50 p.m. Thursday.

Deputies canvassed the neighborhood to come up with any information that might lead them to a suspect. Deputies learned there were several gunshots heard before the car was found rolled to a stop at the curb.

A sheriff's spokesman said they have no suspects.
