Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department deputies arrested a man early Friday after another man was fatally shot Thursday night at a Foothill Farms residence.

Robert Gene McCormack, 43, was arrested on suspicion of murder after the man was shot multiple times after an argument between the victim and a female resident, according to a Sheriff’s Department news release.

Sgt. Tony Turnbull, Sheriff’s Department spokesman, said a call was received shortly before 9 p.m. reporting shots fired in the 5500 block of Monteagle Court, off Hillsdale Boulevard.

The news release provided these details: McCormack intervened in the argument and fought physically with the victim. McCormack then went inside the residence, returned with a firearm and shot the victim. All three adults knew each other.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene. Officials will identify the man after his family is notified.

The female resident was not injured.

McCormack is ineligible for bail and will be arraigned Wednesday in Sacramento Superior Court.
