Man arrested in fatal shooting at Mack Road gas station

Officers responded at 11:31 a.m. to a report of a shooting in the 6600 block of Mack Road. They found the victim, Darryl Hill, 25, of Sacramento, who had been fatally injured in the gas station parking lot. Two other adults at the scene also had been shot. They were treated at an area hospital and released. The victims, along with a 1-year-old child, who was not injured, had arrived at the gas station in the same vehicle just before the shooting, according to a Police Department news release.

On Wednesday, police found the suspect, Kenneth Barnette, in a neighboring jurisdiction, where he was taken into custody at a family member's home.

Information based on eyewitness accounts and evidence collected at the scene led detectives to arrest Barnette on suspicion of murder. He is to appear in court Friday. Police said there are no other suspects in the case.
