RANCHO CORDOVA, CA - A man who appeared to have been shot was found unconscious in a car on a Rancho Cordova street Wednesday morning.

The Hispanic man, described as in his late 20s, was transported to an area hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries, said Sacramento County sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Jason Ramos.

The preliminary investigation suggests the man was shot while driving because his car was found run up against the curb on the 10400 block of White Rock Road, Ramos said. First responders were called about the unconscious driver at about 8 a.m.

Ramos said deputies and Rancho Cordova police have gone door to door in the neighborhood and learned residents heard numerous gunshots earlier.
