Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department detectives arrested an Oakland man wanted in connection with a fatal Dec. 12 gas station shooting believed to have resulted after a marijuana deal went bad.
Jonathan Jahquan Pierce, 19, was taken into custody Thursday night in Oakland on suspicion of murder. He is suspected of killing 23-year-old Patrick Lee Domingo the afternoon of Dec. 12.
The shooting was reported to officers about 3:50 p.m. that day, when deputies received a 911 call of a man who was bleeding from his head in the 2100 block of El Camino Avenue.
When they arrived, deputies found Domingo with a gunshot wound to his head at a Beacon gas station. They performed life-saving measures on Domingo, who was later taken to an area hospital, where he died.
