The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office has identified the man who was found dead from a gunshot wound in a vehicle south of Santa Rosa Thursday as 33-year-old Jose Manuel DeJesus of Santa Rosa. DeJesus was shot once in the head, sheriff’s Sgt. Carlos Basurto said.
He was shot around 2:15 p.m. Thursday in the vehicle in the parking lot of the Carniceria Contreras butcher shop at 1401 Todd Road. Witnesses said they saw a black sedan similar to a 2005 Cadillac Catera or a 2000 Chrysler 300 with three Latino men leaving the parking lot shortly before the victim was found, Basurto said.
