The Sacramento County coroner’s office has identified 31-year-old Kenny Hernandez as the man killed Thursday at an Arden-area apartment complex.

Montrell Woods, 19, was arrested on suspicion of homicide and assault with a deadly weapon in the killing of Hernandez at the apartment complex in the 1800 block of Ethan Way.

Sacramento County Sheriff’s detectives say they learned that Woods, who lives in the apartment complex, argued with the Hernandez before the shooting. Woods then allegedly held a gun to Hernandez and shot him once in the upper body.
