Authorities Monday released the name of a man who was fatally shot by an unidentified assailant two weeks ago in a neighborhood near Sweetwater Reservoir.

Deputies responding to reports of gunfire found Jorkim Rose, 32, mortally wounded at the intersection of Jamacha Boulevard and Thayer Drive in Spring Valley about 9:30 p.m. Aug. 16, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.

Paramedics took Rose to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

What prompted the shooting remains unclear.

“The circumstances and motivations are still under investigation,” Sheriff’s Lt. Chris Steffen said Monday morning. “There is no suspect information at this time.”
