Sacramento County sheriff’s investigators are trying to figure out who shot and killed a 50-year-old man visiting his nephew in Herald on Sunday.

The man, whose identity wasn’t released on Sunday, was shot in the upper body at about 4:30 p.m. in the 13000 block of Purvis Road. The victim wasn’t a Herald resident, but occasionally visited his nephew there, sheriff’s spokesman Jason Ramos said.

The victim was reportedly going on a ride on a dirtbike when the nephew, who was inside his residence, heard a gunshot. He walked outside and found the man’s body in his driveway, Ramos said.
