Suspect arrested in North Sacramento shooting

Sacramento police have arrested a suspect in the shooting death of 20-year-old Christopher Kai Sisoukchaleun, police announced this morning.

Antoine Blessett, 36, was arrested without incident Thursday after police found him driving near the scene of the crime, according to a release from the Sacramento Police Department.

Blessett is believed to have shot Sisoukchaleun several times after an argument about the purchase of alcohol near a liquor store on Del Paso Boulevard near Fairfield Street in North Sacramento.

The shooting took place at about 2 a.m. Thursday and the victim died after being taken to a local hospital.

Witnesses gave police a description, including license, of the truck used by the shooter to leave the scene.

Police later found that vehicle unoccupied, but Blessett was determined to be the registered owner.

Blessett was driving a different vehicle near the crime scene.
