The Kern County Sheriff's Office says they've found a body in a home near the scene of a mass shooting from over the weekend and has been identified as 21-year-old Miguel Bravo. On July 28, 2016, Kern County Sheriff's Office determined his death was a homicide.

The shooting happened early Saturday morning on Stephens Drive.

KCSO said 14 people were shot, but said everyone was expected to survive.

KCSO said the Bravo was discovered late Monday night at an apartment complex on Belle Terrace, across the street from Stephens Drive.

Neighbors said Bravo had just moved into the apartment on the 1st of July.

A friend went to the apartment Monday night and asked the landlord to open the apartment because he had not heard from Bravo for a few days. They found the man inside and KCSO says he died from trauma.

His family has created a GoFundMe page to help with costs associated with his death and funeral.

KCSO says if anyone has information, contact the Secret Witness hotline at 661-322-4040.
