Allen Benzler
Earlier today, Sheriff’s detectives arrested 19 year-old Allen Benzler in connection with the shooting death of a man outside a south Sacramento nightclub last April. Detectives from the Sheriff’s Major Crimes Bureau arrested Benzler at a residence in Modesto, and he was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail on one count of murder. He is being held without bail.

On April 17, 2011, at approximately 1:20 a.m., Sheriff’s deputies responded to calls of shots fired outside the Warners Rendezvous Lounge in the 7100 block of Governors Circle. Upon arrival, deputies found 29 year-old Jesse Fowler with a gunshot wound to his head.

Fowler was transported to a hospital and later died of his injury. Additionally, two other victims showed up at area hospitals with gunshot wounds that were not life-threatening.

Two other individuals, 37 year-old Isreal Washington and 27 year-old Anthony Sanchez, were previously arrested in connection with this case and remain in custody at this time. Each of them is being held on $100,000 bail.

In spite of these arrests, this investigation remains ongoing. Anyone with further information regarding this case is asked to call the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at (916) 874-5115.
