Sacramento youth basketball community shaken by on-court death of Elk Grove boy

Judging by his huge smiles, Aaron Nguyen loved playing basketball. In Facebook and Instagram photos with his youth basketball team, the 12-year-old boy grinned ear to ear while clutching a ball bigger than his head.

Friday night during practice at Joseph Kerr Middle School, the Elk Grove seventh-grader collapsed, according to the Elk Grove Unified School District. His heart stopped and he wasn’t breathing. Emergency and hospital staff were unable to revive him.

A cause of death is not yet known, according to the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office.
