Arrest Made in South Sacramento Murder

Early this morning, Sacramento County Sheriff’s Homicide detectives arrested Cansio Santiago Ramirez, 47, of Sacramento for the murder of 37-year-old Arnulfo Soto which occurred on the afternoon of August 15, 2017. Ramirez was located at his residence and taken into custody without incident.

A little after 1:30 p.m. on August 15, 2017, the Sheriff’s Communication Center received a 911 call regarding a man who was shot at an auto repair shop located in the 3000 block of 52nd Avenue in South Sacramento. Deputies responded to the scene and located the victim, on the ground just outside the auto repair shop, who was suffering from a gunshot wound to the upper torso. 

Deputies immediately began life saving measures but the vicitm deceased at the scene. It is suspected the victim and another male got into a dispute regarding a purchase of a vehicle that led to a physical altercation.  

At some point during the fight, Ramirez allegedly produced a gun and shot the victim in the upper torso. Ramirez, who fled the scene after the shooting, was not part of the physical altercation, but rather a third party at the auto repair shop. 

Ramirez was arrested for murder and booked at the Sacramento County Main Jail. He is currently ineligible for bail and is scheduled to be arraigned in Sacramento Superior Court on August 18, 2017.

Homicide detectives are not releasing the booking photo of Ramirez at this time. Further investigation still needs to be completed by detectives, and the release of the booking photo at this time may compromise the case.
