    CA - Sammy Mercado, 16, Sanger, 12 April 2012

    A 16-year-old Sanger boy who reportedly tried to steal marijuana from a southeast Fresno grow site is missing and may have been shot, the Fresno County Sheriff's Office said today.

    Detectives believe Sammy Mercado and two friends drove to the field at Annadale and Willow avenues about 7:30 a.m. Thursday to steal marijuana, sheriff's Lt. Robert Salazar said at a news conference in downtown Fresno.

    Sammy left the vehicle and entered the field's southwest corner, where he was confronted by two men who came out of a hut on the property, Salazar said.

    Sammy's friends drove away but returned a short time later. They reportedly heard gunshots and saw Sammy lying on the ground, Salazar said.

    Sammy might have been put in the trunk of a four-door white Toyota Camry that a third man had driven to the field, Salazar said. Sheriff's detectives believe that Sammy was shot and injured.

    He has not been seen since, Salazar said.

    Sammy was reported missing by his family to Sanger police Thursday evening. The sheriff's office was contacted Friday afternoon, Salazar said.
