MONTEREY COUNTY, Calif. -

Monterey County Sheriff's Deputies are investigating a homicide. Someone driving on Harrison Rd., just north of Russel Rd., called 911 early Sunday morning to report a body lying in the northbound lane.

Deputies and officers from the California Highway Patrol responded to call to find 45-year-old Salvador Zambrano, of Salinas, laying on his back with a gunshot wound. They immediately started CPR but it was unsuccessful.

The incident happened in an area just outside the Salinas city limits.  For that reason, the Sheriff's Department is leading the investigation. They ask that you call either Investigators Terry Kaiser or Shaheen Jorgensen at 831-755-3772 or call the tip line: 888-833-4847.
