The man in his 20’s was reportedly fishing with a friend Tuesday, July 2, at the retention basin located across the street from the Granite Point Apartments at 4500 block of Truxel Road off Terracina Drive, police Sgt. Doug Morse said.

The man’s family arrived at the retention basin and discovered him floating in the water, Morse said. The Sacramento Fire Department responded to the scene and called police at about 5:42 p.m., Morse said.

Police made contact with the victim’s friend and were interviewing him, Morse said.

Homicide detectives and crime scene investigators remained at the scene after 11 p.m.
