SACRAMENTO—Sacramento Police are asking for the community’s help in locating Antoine Weber, 16, who is wanted for homicide. Weber is believed to have shot and fatally injured his brother’s girlfriend, Nichole Duarte, 19.
Officers responded to the 7200 block of Gloria Drive on Saturday, March 15 at approximately 12:37 a.m., when the victim’s neighbor called police after the injured Duarte knocked on her door in search of help. Responding officers found that she had a gunshot wound to her face and was in need of immediate medical attention.
