On Sunday, October 09, 2016, the Mammoth Lakes Police Department responded to reports of gunshots in the area of 200 Azimuth in the Town of Mammoth Lakes. Officers arrived on scene and located a male victim who appeared to have sustained multiple gunshot wounds. Mono County paramedics responded to the scene and pronounced the victim deceased.

The Mono County Sheriff-Coroner confirmed next of kin notification late yesterday morning. The decedent has been identified as 35 year-old Omar Jose Hernandez Sanchez, a Mammoth Lakes resident. No additional information will be forthcoming pending the investigation by the Mammoth Lakes Police Department and the Mono County District Attorney’s Office.
