SACRAMENTO – The family of a man killed in a drive-by shooting suspects his murder is linked to his testimony in the high profile barbershop murder trial.
The Sacramento County Sheriff's Office confirmed that Marquelle Jones, 24, was killed Tuesday night. Officials said there is no indication his murder is connected to the trial, but Jones' father doesn't believe his son's death is a coincidence.
"I had a gut feeling something was wrong," Marvin Barksdale said.
Call it a father's intuition -- Barksdale had a nagging feeling all day Tuesday.
"Something was bothering me that particular day," Barksdale recalled. "I wanted to see what was going on with my son."
So, when he saw the crime scene on the news that night, Barksdale knew it had something to do with one of his sons.
