Sacramento police have identified a suspect and a person of interest in the Thanksgiving Day shooting death of a woman in a north Sacramento neighborhood east of Robla.
Avery Draughty is wanted in connection with the shooting of 31-year-old Tiffany Silva, who was shot in the 3700 block of Balsam Street about 2:50 p.m. Nov. 28. Detectives identified Draughty early in the investigation as a person of interest and that has now led to a warrant for his arrest, according to a Police Department news release.
Police said it is believed that Draughty, along with his girlfriend Wanette Armstrong, fled the scene of the shooting in what witnesses described as a two-door white vehicle or a gold-colored Saturn.
Armstrong is sought as a person of interest in the case. Silva reportedly was shot shortly after coming into contact with Armstrong.
