Two Arrested in Shooting Homicide

SACRAMENTO – A boyfriend and girlfriend have been arrested for a shooting on Mack Road on July 7, 2013, that left one man dead, according to an official press release by the Sacramento Police Department (SPD).

Reshay Tiara Mott, 19, and Elliton Jay-Twan Varnado, 20, were arrested on July 8, 2013, at The Stonegate Apartments. According to the SPD, mugshots are being withheld while investigators are seeking information into other potential robbery cases involving the duo.

On the morning of July 7, SPD officers were dispatched to a shooting where upon arrival, they found a 49-year-old man who had sustained a gunshot wound to his upper body.

The victim was found at the base of a stairwell, near a parking lot of an apartment complex on the 5100 block of Mack Road. The victim was reportedly not breathing, and despite lifesaving efforts by both officers and Sacramento Fire personnel, the victim died at the scene.

Homicide and Crime Scene Investigators arrived and delved into the case, which ultimately led them to the capture and arrest of Mott and Varnado.

According to the SPD, investigators discovered that Mott had reportedly set up a meeting with the victim, and with the assistance of her boyfriend, Varnado, they would rob the victim of his valuables. In this case, the victim allegedly met with Mott, was confronted by Varnado and a fight ensued. Officers report the victim fought back, and was shot and killed.

The SPD urges anyone with information pertaining to this case to contact the Communications Center at 916-264-5471 or Crime Alert at 916-443-HELP (4357).
