It’s unclear exactly what led up to Brewer being shot.

Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department detectives later identified 39-year-old Shylow Therman, a Sacramento resident, as the suspect in Brewer’s killing. He was arrested on Jan. 17, but had already been in custody since Dec. 27 on unrelated charges.

Therman is being held at Sacramento County Jail and is ineligible for bail.
