The suspect fled eastbound on Delta Fair Blvd. and discarded his .22 caliber revolver into a sewer drain. The victim believed he was targeted because of his gang status. The .22 caliber revolver was recovered and was found to have four empty shell casings and five live rounds. The suspect was not located.

•On 5/19/16 at 10:17 pm, officers attempted to catch up to a dark colored Toyota or Honda in the area of West 6th St. and J St. The vehicle fled and could not be located before a stop could be attempted. During an area check, 36 year old Patrick Brown was seen parking a similar vehicle near the listed address and fleeing into the complex when he saw officers approaching. He was located inside an apartment with several other subjects. The car was found to be recently reported stolen. All subjects in the apartment were on either parole or probation. Brown was taken into custody without incident and found to have warrants and a set of shaved keys. 38 year old Francisco Gonzalez was contacted inside and found to have warrants for his arrest as well. Both were taken into custody without incident, the vehicle was returned to the owner, and the apartment was cleared out being no one actually lived there. Both subjects were booked into county jail.

•On 5/19/16 at 8:31 pm, and APD detective obtained a Ramey Warrant for 21 year old Michael Moore’s arrest regarding a residential burglary. Having spotted him recently in the area of West 9th St. and J St., officers checked the area for him. He was located in front of the listed address and arrested without incident. He was transported to APD and interviewed by the detective. Moore gave a full confession to the burglary. He was later booked into county jail.

•On 5/19/16 at 3:21 pm, County Hazmat was called to the Kaiser clinic at 3400 Delta Fair Blvd. for a report of a suspicious envelope which had an unknown white powder inside. A Kaiser employee opened the letter along with several others as part of her duties. When she did the white powder spilled out of the envelope and she informed her supervisor. The envelope itself had various scribbling and gibberish on all sides. Hazmat determined the powder not to be dangerous but was not able to tell the exact compound until it was tested further. They provided

officers with photos of the envelope for further investigation. The return address was an address out of Pittsburg. There were no specific names associated with the envelope or direct threats. The case is still under investigation. There were no reports of injuries as a result and at this point appears to be a hoax.

•On 5/19/16 at 8:53 am, a citizen walking the trail by the canal in the area of James Donlon Blvd. and Blythe Dr. called in a body floating in the water. We responded and confirmed the report. CCC Fire, CCC Water District, and East Bay Regional Parks PD responded to assist. The area was shut down and cordoned off while the body removed from the canal. The victim was identified by the Coroner’s Office as a recently reported missing adult.

The Sacramento Sheriff’s Department has confirmed that the body of missing Sacramento man Kyler Jackson was found in a slough near Walnut Grove.

As was reported by the Herald on Thursday, May 26, Jackson and his one-year-old daughter Kaylee were last seen in Antioch last Sunday, May 22 at 11:00 p.m. The baby’s mother, Jayonna Mason and Kyler’s mother both contacted police on Monday after attempts to reach Jackson by cell phone were unsuccessful. They believed the behavior was out of character for him.

A security camera in Walnut Grove on the river road picked up what was believed to be a video of Jackson’s car, a 2002, 4-door, silver Ford Taurus (CA license # 4WVW944), Sunday night.

Jackson has a past address listed in the 3500 block of San Jose Way in Sacramento.  The Sacramento Police Department had made several attempts to locate Mr. Jackson at his residence with no avail.

Sacramento County Sheriff’s Spokesman Sergeant Tony Turnbull, provided the following information in a press release, this morning:

At approximately 5:45 p.m. on May 28, 2016, the Sheriff’s Communication Center received a call regarding a body located in the water in the Georgiana Slough in South Sacramento County.

Sheriff’s Deputies and the Walnut Grove Fire Department responded to the scene.  The victim was recovered from the water.  The Sacramento County Coroner responded and positively identified the victim as 23-year-old Kyler Jackson.

Members of the Sheriff’s Department Marine Enforcement Detail were called out to continue searching the waterways in the area in search of the missing vehicle and his daughter, Kaylee Jackson who was still missing.  The Marine Enforcement Detail located an anomaly in the area of Andrus Island Road and the Walnut Grove Bridge using sonar equipment.  The Drowning Accident Rescue Team (DART) was called out in attempts to identify the anomaly.  The search was suspended at approximately 10:30 p.m., because of dangerous conditions.

The Sheriff’s Marine Enforcement Detail resumed their search this morning. DART will be utilized again, if deputies are able to identify a potential target under water with their sonar equipment.

We will continue to provide updates to this story as additional reports are received and details are confirmed.
