SACRAMENTO, CA - It now appears Wednesday's shooting in Rosemont that took the life of a 40-year-old man occurred several hours before the man's 18-year-old son called sheriff's deputies to say he had shot his father.
According to Sgt. Jason Ramos, Daniel Cartwright called the sheriff's department around 10:40 a.m. and informed them he had shot his father, Richard A Cartwright.
Deputies responded to the scene and found Cartwright's father with at least one gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Daniel Cartwright was taken into custody without incident, said Ramos. He was booked into Sacramento County Jail on a single charge of murder and is being held without bail.
Kody Randall, Daniel Cartwright's friend who also lives in the apartment complex, said the father and son argued a lot.
