Woodland shooting suspects arrested

Woodland police arrested two suspects in connection with a shooting at a local bar last August. The violence at Tony’s Bar, located at 607 East Street, left a man and a woman badly injured and EMT responders rushed them to the UC Davis Medical Center for treatment. Despite sustaining multiple gunshot wounds, both victims have since recovered. No arrests were made at that time.

After nearly eight months of investigation, police determined that Elk Grove resident Marcus Blackmon, 34, and Sacramento resident Jason Broadbent, 25, were responsible for the shooting. With the assistance of Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department and Sacramento Police Department, Woodland officers served search arrest warrants at two locations in Sacramento County in the early morning hours of April 26. Both suspects were arrested.

Blackmon and Broadbent were booked into Sacramento County Jail and will be brought to Yolo County to stand trial. The two men are charged with attempted murder, and Broadbent also faces charges of possession of stolen property and being a felon in possession of firearms. Broadbent will be tried for the latter charges in Sacramento County.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact the Woodland Police Department at 530-661-7800.
