Sacramento police provided a few more details about the shooting death of a 22-year-old man at a midtown apartment that resulted in the arrest of a man and a woman on torture charges.
Police late Tuesday arrested Jeremy Daniel McMahon, 31, on suspicion of homicide, torture with intent to cause cruel and extreme pain, false imprisonment and possession of a firearm by a felon. Michelle Kiyomi Okumura, 23, was arrested on suspicion of torture with intent to cause cruel or extreme pain and false imprisonment.
The pair was detained Tuesday morning at an apartment in the 1700 block of O Streets where police were called around 3 a.m. A citizen heard loud bangs, glass breaking and possibly gunshots.
When officers arrived at the apartment house, they found Eric Solen Jackson of Sacramento with a gunshot wound in his upper body. McMahon and Okumura were detained because officers suspected they were involved.
Jackson was declared dead at the scene.
Officers questioned neighbors to find out more information and a gun was recovered and booked into evidence.
Police said that McMahon, Okumura and Jackson knew each other.
"The victim and the female suspect had a business relationship," said police spokeswoman Officer Michele Gigante. Gigante said the shooting was a result of a disagreement arising out of that relationship.
Police suspect that Okumura told McMahon, her boyfriend, about the disagreement. Police say that Jackson visited Okumura's midtown apartment over the weekend when both Okumura and McMahon were home. They held Jackson captive and assaulted him, according to Gigante.
"They got into some type of altercation and the victim attempted to flee," said Gigante. "That is when he gets shot by the male suspect."
The torture allegedly inflicted by McMahon and Okumura was described only as assault. Gigante could not provide a detailed description.
