SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Sacramento Police have arrested a man in connection to the fatal shooting of a 20-year-old outside of a liquor store in North Sacramento early Thursday morning.

Police arrested 36-year-old Antoine Blessett for the murder of Christopher Sisoukchaleun.

Police say a group of men were outside Sunland Liquors on Del Paso Boulevard at Fairfield Street at 2 a.m. when the suspect and the victim got into the argument.

Blesset pulled out a gun and shot Sisoukchaleun multiple times in the torso, according to the Sacramento Police Department.

Witnesses gave police a description of the suspect’s vehicle and license plate number. Police say Blessett was the registered owner of the truck. Officers found Blessett late Thursday driving another vehicle.
