A man who was fatally shot in a home invasion robbery in Sacramento's Pocket neighborhood early Saturday morning has been identified by the Coroner's Office as 31-year-old Joseph Merjil of Sacramento.
According to police, Merjil was one of the intruders. Three other people were wounded.
Police earlier identified one of the other alleged intruders as Thomas Ordonaz, 21. Ordonaz was arrested Saturday night for investigation of assault with a deadly weapon.
Officers responded to reports of shots fired on Haven Court off Greenhaven Drive at 3:29 a.m. Saturday. When they arrived, they discovered that an exchange of gunfire had occurred between the homeowner and would-be robbers.
One of the intruders, later identified as Merjil, was fatally wounded and pronounced dead at the scene by Sacramento Fire Department. Three others, including the homeowner, were shot during the exchange of gunfire and suffered non-life-threatening injuries. The three were transported to a hospital for treatment.
