MARYSVILLE (CBS13) — The suspected gunman in a fatal New Year’s Eve shooting in Marysville has been arrested, according to police.
Parolee Marcus Hume, 32, was found hiding in a house in the 1900 block of Hammonton-Smartsville Road in Linda on Tuesday. The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force along with Marysville Police Department, Yuba County Sheriff’s Department and state correctional officers all were involved in the arrest, which happened at about 4 p.m., according to Marysville police Sgt. Chris Sachs.
Hume was wanted for the Saturday afternoon slaying of Steven “Sam” Moore, 38, who was shot dead outside his Marysville apartment in the 1100 block of Arthur Street. Moore was shot in the face with a shotgun, police said.
Hume didn’t immediately come out of the house, but when officers determined he was inside and called in reinforcements, up to 30 officers in all, he came out about 30 minutes later and surrendered without incident.
“There was no place for him to go,” U.S. Marshalls Deputy Frank Newsom said. “We had the residence surrounded. He knew he was had.”
Neighbors were startled by the large police presence.
“There was quite a few of them. They had SWAT,” Edward Roberts said. “We just moved in two weeks ago. As long as ain’t nobody killing nobody, I guess there’s no worries right now.”
Also, Beale Air Force Base confirmed earlier Tuesday that an airman stationed at the base was one of the suspects arrested in connection with the shooting.
Beale Air Force Base officials announced that 21-year-old Airman 1st Class William Silliman was one of three other adult suspects arrested for allegedly being an accomplice in Moore’s death.
Police say for reasons they won’t say, a group of six people, including two juveniles, went over to Moore’s apartment to “hurt” him. An altercation occurred and Moore was eventually shot in the face, police said.
Silliman was arrested along with David Leslie Eneix, 27; and Kari Felicia Mulkey, 20; all of the 1200 block of East 22nd St. at 11:45 p.m. Saturday at their Marysville apartment complex. They were booked into the Yuba County Jail on charges of conspiracy to commit murder.
Police also arrested two male juvenile suspects, ages 16 and 17, who were booked into Bi-County Juvenile Hall.
Silliman is a member of the 9th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron at Beale.
“Beale AFB would like to extend our condolences to the victim and their family,” said Brig. Gen. Paul H. McGillicuddy, 9th Reconnaissance Wing commander, in a statement released Tuesday.
“This event is tragic and if the allegations are true then this is not an accurate reflection of the outstanding airmen serving here and around the world. We take pride in the Air Force core values of integrity first, service before self and excellence in all we do. We are working cooperatively with local law enforcement agencies to carry out the investigation.”
Moore, who was estranged from his wife of 18 years, leaves behind three children.
