At approximately 3:00PM on Wednesday, January 22, 2014, the Sheriff’s Communications Center received multiple 9-1-1 calls from an apartment complex in the 1800 block of Ethan Way, reporting a man had been shot.
When Deputies arrived on scene, they determined the 31-year old male shooting victim had already been transported by family to a local hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.
Sheriff’s Homicide Detectives were able to determine the victim and suspect were involved in a verbal altercation when the suspect shot the victim one time in the upper body. Although the suspect fled the scene, the Homicide Detectives have already been able to identify the suspect and his whereabouts. His identity will be released once he has been arrested and booked into the Main Jail.
The victim’s identity will be released by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office.
