The Sacramento Sheriff’s Department made an arrest this morning related to yesterday’s homicide in an apartment complex in the 1800 block of Ethan Way.
Montrell Woods, 19 (pictured above), was booked into the Sacramento Main Jail for Murder early this morning, January 23, 2014.
At approximately 3:00pm yesterday (Wednesday, January 22, 2014), the Sheriff’s Communications Center received multiple 9-1-1 calls from the apartment complex reporting a man had been shot.
When Deputies arrived on scene, they determined the 31-year old male shooting victim had already been transported by family to a local hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.
Sheriff’s Homicide Detectives were able to determine the victim and Woods were involved in a verbal altercation when the suspect shot the victim one time in the upper body. Although Woods fled the scene, the Homicide Detectives were able to identify him and his whereabouts.
Homicide Detectives have confirmed Woods is a resident of the same apartment complex as the victim and became involved in a verbal altercation.
The victim’s identity will be released by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office.
