SACRAMENTO—An arrest has been made by Sacramento County Sheriff’s homicide detectives in the shooting death of two people found in a Sacramento residence in December.
Jeremy Xavier Pridmore-Ybarra, 35, has been booked into the Sacramento County Jail on charges involving murder and felony weapon possession related to this incident.
On Friday, December 12, the Sheriff’s Department responded to a call about an incident at a residence in the 5200 block of Kenneth Avenue in Carmichael, and found a man and a woman dead from gunshot wounds.
Ybarra was later arrested on Thursday, February 12 for outstanding domestic violence and firearm-related charges in Sacramento. During the arrest, Sheriff’s detectives also found Ybarra to be in possession of numerous additional illegal weapons for which he was subsequently charged. Through the course of this continuing investigation, detectives concluded that Ybarra was also responsible for the double homicide.
Detectives believe Ybarra knew the victims, but his motive for their murder it is not yet known.
At the time, the brother of the slain man, Ray Coleman, identified the victims as 49-year-old John Colbert and his girlfriend, Breezy Hubbard, 35.
Ybarra is being held at the Sacramento County Jail without the possibility of bail and faces his arraignment for this case on Friday, February 27. Detectives say that no one else is believed to be wanted in connection to the case.
The Sacramento County homicide team would like to thank the Carmichael community and public for their numerous phone calls and tips to help bring this case to a resolution.
