“On August 5, 2022, Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputies and Officers from the Rancho Cordova Police Department responded to a shooting at a residence on the 3000 block of Ramsgate Way in Rancho Cordova. Deputies and Officers arrived on scene and discovered the victim, later identified as 20-year-old Corey Shearer, lying on the front lawn of the residence with several gunshot wounds. Shearer was transported to a local hospital, where he was unfortunately pronounced deceased.

Sheriff’s Homicide Detectives and Crime Scene Investigators responded to the scene. Through their investigation, they determined the suspect was a young black male adult wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and black pants with holes. Witnesses observed the suspect draw a handgun from his waistband and shoot Shearer several times before fleeing on foot. Detectives located a handgun nearby, along with several articles of property belonging to the suspect. They also discovered video footage of the suspect jumping into a nearby backyard.

Detectives continued a long and exhaustive investigation, eventually hosting a press conference and releasing the surveillance video in hopes of being able to identify the suspect in January of 2023. After their tireless efforts, Homicide Detectives were eventually able to identify the suspect as 19-year-old Amyis Coogler of Sacramento. Coogler had been arrested for unrelated robberies by Sheriff’s Robbery Detectives in June of 2023, allowing for DNA collection during the booking process.

Through DNA, witness accounts, and other evidence collected, Coogler was formally charged in the homicide of Corey Shearer today.”
