Photo: scene of Gonzalez’ death
SACRAMENTO – On July 25 at 8:30 p.m. the SCSD came upon a fatal hit and run.
50-year-old Joaquin Gonzalez lay dead in the Del Taco parking lot in the 4600 block of Watt Avenue.
Detectives culled information from witnesses. They determined that someone intentionally ran over the victim. The suspect fled southbound on Orange Grove Avenue at a high rate of speed.
Three days later detectives arrested a 38-year-old man for the crime. His charges relate to murder and a parole violation. Detectives are withholding his photograph and name “due to pending investigation.”
