No arrests have been made and deputies are unsure exactly what prompted the shooting. Homicide detectives are working to determine a motive and a description of the killers.

A woman who was inside the home with Darbonne at the time was able to grab a small child and escape. “She was able to run out the back, grab the child and jump over the fence to get to the neighbor,” said Lisa Bowman, a Sheriff’s department spokeswoman. She told police the intruders were unknown to her.

Breanna Darbonne, the victim’s daughter, had just spoken with her father a few days ago. “We didn’t have the best relationship, but we’ve been working on it and it’s been improving and I appreciate the little stuff he did for me,” she said.

It was the Darbonne’s girlfriend who called deputies, reporting she had been the victim of a home invasion-turned-shooting. Anyone with information is asked to please call the Sheriff’s Department at (916) 874-5115.
