Teen charged as adult in fatal Rosemont robbery

A 17-year-old arrested in connection with the shooting death of a Rosemont man during a June 22 home-invasion robbery was arraigned as an adult in the killing.

Deondre Humphrey was arraigned Thursday in Sacramento Superior Court on suspicion of murder and robbery in the death of Paul Jarvis, 64, but did not enter a plea.

Humphrey returns to court before Sacramento Superior Court Judge Geoffrey Goodman on July 6.

Humphrey was arrested Wednesday by Sacramento County sheriff’s detectives, sheriff’s officials said, and is being held without bail at Sacramento County Juvenile Hall.

Sheriff’s dispatchers received an emergency call around 1:45 a.m. June 22 regarding a man shot at a home in the 9000 block of Goldilocks Way. Deputies arrived to find the man, later identified as Jarvis, with a gunshot wound to the upper torso. Jarvis was pronounced dead at the scene, sheriff’s officials said.

Sheriff’s officials said Jarvis’ son had returned home and was approached by four armed individuals at the home’s front door. The four forced their way into the home, told the son to get on the floor, then confronted Jarvis. One of the armed individuals fired a weapon, striking Jarvis before the group fled in two or three vehicles, including one that sheriff’s officials say belonged to Jarvis.
