Police: Racially Motivated Murder Suspect in Custody

The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Homicide Detectives have identified the man responsible for the murder of Hassan Alawsi, 46, at a home improvement store in the 4600 block of Florin Road on March 16, 2014.

Detectives have named Jeffrey Michael Caylor, 44,  as the shooting suspect in an arrest warrant affidavit filed with the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office.  Caylor is currently in custody at an outside county jail facility on unrelated charges and will face a charge of murder for this incident upon his extradition to Sacramento County Jail.

Detectives believe Caylor’s motive for shooting and killing Hassan Alawsi was racially motivated and are seeking anyone who may have been victimized by similar acts of racially biased violence by Caylor to contact the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department at (916) 874-5115.
