ANSWER: Elpidio Tellez was arrested following the fatal shooting of 36-year-old Jesse James Nunez.

Nunez was found at 15th and S streets about 8:41 p.m. Nov. 7 after a Sacramento Police Department patrol sergeant heard several gunshots. According to accounts in The Bee, a witness reported that a shooting had just occurred, and people were seen scattering from the area.

Nunez suffered gunshot wounds to his upper body.

Tellez, 36, was arrested just south of the area where the shooting occurred. He was initially taken into custody on warrants and later arrested in connection with Nunez's death.

Tellez is being held without bail in Sacramento County Jail, charged with murder, possession of a firearm by a felon, and buying or receiving stolen property.

According to Sacramento Superior Court online records, his next court date is Friday.
