Sacramento Sheriff detectives arrested a local man over the weekend for a fatal shooting last week in North Highlands.
Brian Sholl, 22, was taken into custody and booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail for murder.
On Wednesday, July 29 at approximately 11:30 p.m., sheriff’s deputies responded to a call at a residence on the 6800 block of Harlequin Way in Foothill Farms regarding a shooting. They found a 25-year-old male been shot several times in his upper torso. The victim, later identified as Brian Haywood, was pronounced dead at the scene.
An investigation by sheriff’s detectives led to the identification of Sholl as the person responsible for this incident. Detectives believe Sholl and the victim were in a verbal altercation that escalated, when Sholl took out a firearm and shot Haywood.
Officers canvassed the neighborhood, but were unable to get any information about a motive behind the shooting. Anyone with any further information about the shooting is asked to call the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department at (916) 874-5115.
Sholl is currently being held without bail. He was scheduled to appear in court yesterday.
Friends of the victim, Brian Haywood, have set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to help with his family with the funeral expense. $260 has been raised through the site so far, and other fund raising efforts are underway as well.
