SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A 17 year-old male has been arrested on charges of murder and attempted robbery in connection to Friday night’s shooting at a possible cockfighting ring.

Sheriff’s Deputies responded to reports of gunfire and assault at the 9500 block of Gerber Road.

In the backyard of a private residence, deputies discovered 32 year-old Ronnie Smith, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators found that Smith died from injuries he sustained during an assault at the scene.

Investigators say that the 17 year-old male had gone to the residence on Gerber Road with the intent to commit a robbery, which are directly responsible for Smith’s fatal assault.

Andry Karpach called authorities after the 17 year-old male had come to his door asking for help, claiming that he had been assaulted.

Due to his age, the identity of the 17 year-old male is being withheld.
