Two suspects wanted in connection with a fatal shooting outside a North Natomas restaurant last weekend have turned themselves in, said Sacramento Police Department spokesman Sgt. Norm Leong.
Marcus Jamal Davis (left photo), 26, and Robert Earl Lucas (right photo), 30, both of Vallejo, were taken into custody Thursday by Sacramento police and booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail on suspicion of murder, according to a Police Department release.
Both are ineligible for bail, according to jail booking logs.
The two suspects had been wanted in connection with the shooting death of Chester Jackson, 27, outside the International House of Pancakes restaurant in the 2900 block of Advantage Lane just before 2:40 a.m. Sunday.
Based on surveillance photos released Wednesday, police received tips within hours leading to the suspects' identities, according to the release.
On Thursday, relatives of one of the suspects contacted detectives, indicating they would bring the suspects to Sacramento police headquarters, the release said.
Davis and Lucas arrived and turned themselves in at about 4 p.m., Leong said.
Homicide detectives believe two groups inside the IHOP Sunday got into an argument that escalated outdoors and ended in Jackson being shot, The Bee reported.
Officers found Jackson lying on pavement suffering from a gunshot wound.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Call The Bee's Matt Kawahara, (916) 321-1015.
