In an interview Wednesday night with FOX40, Monroy-Bracamontes said either a deputy or his wife shot Oliver, but that he did shoot Davis Jr. He also told the station that he shot Anthony Holmes during a failed carjacking attempt. He said came to Sacramento searching for the man who had an affair with his wife and that she came with him.
Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones had said earlier that he had no concerns about the professionalism of his officers toward the suspects. But he said, “I would just as soon our officers and professional staff not have to look at these two suspects every day during the pendency of the criminal trials.”
