Rancho Cordova Homicide

At approximately 11:27 this morning, a man called 9-1-1, to report that he had just shot somebody. When deputies arrived at the mobile home park near Routier Road and Folsom Boulevard (Poole Road), they found 50-year-old Darrell Cadinha dead inside his mobile home, from a single gunshot wound to the head. There were other persons inside the home at the time of the shooting.

The suspect, Kenneth Mulligan, 56, was waiting at the scene when deputies arrived and was taken into custody without incident, and a handgun was retrieved. The suspect and victim are known to each other, but the motive and other details of the homicide are still under investigation.
