Investigators have determined the suspect, who formerly resided at the home, arrived and became involved in an argument with his grandmother and 44-year-old uncle. During the argument the suspect threatened both his grandmother and uncle with the weapon. The weapon was recovered at the scene and has been determined to be an air pistol with a mounted scope, capable of firing either BB’s or pellets.
In accordance with the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department policies and procedures, the two officers (a 27-year-old/six-and a half year department veteran; and a 30-year-old/five-year department veteran) involved in this incident will be placed on paid administrative leave. The circumstances surrounding this incident will be investigated by the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Unit, Internal Affairs Unit, and the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office.
After he is deemed fit for incarceration, the suspect will be charged with assault with a deadly weapon and booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail.
