BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — The Kern County Coroner's office has identified a victim involved in a deadly shooting in Northeast Bakersfield.

BPD says they were dispatched to a home in the 2800 block of Fordham Street near Columbus Street around 7 p.m. on April 26 where they found 36-year-old Enrique Meza Guadron suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. According to officials, Guadron was pronounced dead at the scene.
