The Sacramento Police Department has arrested 36-year-old Antoine Blessett for yesterday morning’s murder of 20-year-old Christopher Sisoukchaleun. The arrest took place near the scene of the crime hours after the incident.
The incident took place yesterday morning at 2:00am as police responded to a call of a man who had been shot in the 1900 block of Del Paso Blvd, later discovered to be outside Sunland Liquor.
Upon arrival, officers discovered the victim, Sisoukchaleun, had been shot multiple times in the upper body. Medical personal transported Sisoukchaleun to a nearby hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.
Witnesses provided a suspect vehicle description along with a license plate. The suspect, Blessett, was found to be the registered owner and was located later that day near the crime scene driving a different vehicle. He was taken into custody without incident.
Homicide Detectives believe the altercation ensued over the purchase of alcohol and was possibly gang related.
Blessett’s mug shot is not being released at this time due to the ongoing investigation.
