SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Sacramento County sheriff’s homicide detectives have arrested a suspect in connection with the shooting death of a man in the Rosemont area last week.
Michael Almeda, 19, was taken into custody Tuesday evening and was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail on a charge of murder, Sgt. Jason Ramos said. He is ineligible for bail.
Shortly after 6:20 p.m. on Jan. 17, deputies responded to the 4100 block of Westporter Drive regarding a shooting. Upon arriving, they discovered Alexander Chavez, 21, in the driver’s seat of a SUV stopped in the middle of the road. He had been shot and was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The investigation remains ongoing, and detectives are looking at the possibility that there may be other suspects associated with this incident.
The relationship between the suspect and the victim in this case, as well as a motive for the shooting, are still being investigated, Ramos said.
