Three Suspects Arrested in Connection to Sacramento Murder



On January 28, 2010, Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department Homicide Bureau detectives arrested 21-year-old Cort Parnell Milgrim and 19-year-old Joel Satchell for their involvement in the January 26, 2010, shooting death of 26-year-old Shawn West. On January 29, 2010, Sheriff’s Major Crime Bureau detectives arrested 21-year-old Andre Powe for his participation in the crime. Both Milgrim and Satchell are residents of Elk Grove and were arrested after they were questioned at the Homicide Bureau’s office. Powe, a Sacramento resident, was taken into custody at his home in the 1200 block of Clinton Road.

On January 26, 2010, at 9:24 p.m., Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a fast food restaurant at the corner of Stockton Boulevard and Elsie Avenue regarding the report of a shooting. Deputies arrived and found West lying in the parking lot; he had suffered at least one gunshot wound to his upper body. The deputies performed cardio pulmonary resuscitation until paramedics arrived and pronounced West dead at the scene.

Investigators have now learned West was with his brother and a male friend in the restaurant’s parking lot to do a drug deal. West was shot and killed during the drug transaction by the suspects who then fled the scene in a dark four-door sedan. One suspect had his girlfriend’s 14-month-old child with him at the time of the crime.

The suspect’s were booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail on charges including: murder, robbery, and child endangerment. Milgrim and Satchell were scheduled to be arraigned on February 1, 2010, at 1:30 p.m., in Department 63. Powe is scheduled to be arraigned on February 2, 2010, at 1:30 p.m., in Department 63.
