Sacramento – Four People Shot on Super Bowl Sunday, and Several Domestic Violence Arrests
SACRAMENTO—Four people were shot and a fifth was beaten during a street fight in North Sacramento on Super Bowl Sunday, and officers were kept busy all evening on domestic violence calls.
Sacramento police officers responded to a call of multiple shots fired on the 100 block of Cathcart Avenue near Gillespie Street just after 11:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 1. When police arrived, they found two men and two women shot in the street, and a fifth person severely beaten. Officers surrounded a two-block area while they searched for the shooters. Several people were detained, but it was unclear if any of them were involved in the shooting, according to Lt. Steve Oliveira with the Sacramento Police Department.
Oliveira said the shooting happened after a possible Super Bowl party was wrapping up and an argument began in the street. Two people from each side were injured in the shooting, leaving officers to believe there was more than one shooter. At one point officers thought they had a suspect cornered in a home on Cathcart Avenue and considered calling in the SWAT team. But when the home was searched, nobody was found inside.
Throughout the ordeal, officers instructed neighbors to stay inside their homes as it would take several hours to investigate and collect evidence at the shooting scene. The five victims were taken to the hospital and fortunately none of the injuries were life-threatening.
No arrests have been made at this time. Police said the investigation is still very active.
Though that incident was the only shooting reported in the Sacramento area on Super Bowl Sunday, in addition to the drunk in public and driving under the influence calls, area law enforcement had plenty of domestic violence incidents on their hands to deal with. It was not revealed if any of these incidents were related to game-watching parties or not.
Just as the Seahawks-Patriots game was getting started, Citrus Heights Police had arrested Jaime Gomez, 38, on charges of battery on a spouse or co-habitant, cruelty to a child by inflicting injury, and abuse by causing injury. He was arrested at 4 pm, and booked into Sacramento Jail on $50,000 bail. Later, at 8 pm, Elk Grove Police arrested 24-year-old Michael Elijah Williams on charges of domestic battery and abuse. Records show he posted bail of $50,000 after booking in Sacramento.
As the evening wore on, Sacramento police were called to an incident that resulted in the arrest of Nicholas Anthony Leite at 8:48 pm for domestic battery and abuse. The 25-year-old was booked at Sacramento on $50,000 bail. And at about the same time, Folsom Police were detaining 42-year-old Scott Brian Tetreault on the same charges. Sacramento Sheriff’s deputies out of the Northeast Division arrested Jesstofed Christian Cacho, 35, at 9:37 pm on charges of domestic battery and abuse. At 10 pm, deputies in Carmichael arrested Jose Antonio Morales, 23, on domestic battery and abuse. Bail was set at $50,000 for all of them as well.
At 10:45, Sacramento police were called to an incident resulting in the arrest of Rodreco Mulkey, 50, on charges of inflicting corporal injury on a spouse or co-habitant. His bail was set at $100,000.
At 11:30, while police were responding to the North Sacramento shooting, other officers responded to the final domestic violence call of the night, to a home on Rio Linda less than two miles away. Darryl Wayne Jett, 37 and a reported waste collection worker, was charged with domestic battery, abuse, and violating a court order related to domestic violence. Jett has been charged with domestic violence several times in the past year, along with other charges. He was arrested on March 28 for domestic battery, abuse, and failure to appear in court. On April 4 he was charged with possession of a controlled substance and a probation violation, and on April 11 he faced another domestic battery charge. On June 28 he was again charged with domestic battery and possession of a controlled substance.
