2014 Sacramento shootings Jose Cruz

Jacks truck

24 Oct, 2014

The suspect approaches Cruz, a gardener who is working on a home on Coronado. He has already abandoned the white Mustang soft-top. He demands the keys of the red Ford F-150 while showing his weapon. He points the pistol at Cruz with his right hand and holds his left arm wrapped in a bloody shirt. Suspect:

I need a favor.


What’s the favor?

He replies:

I need your keys. Hurry up, because they’re chasing me. Hurry up. I don’t want to hurt you.

Cruz hands over the keys and the suspect helps him unhitch a trailer full of gardening equipment from the truck. The suspects take the truck and drive to Fair Oaks Boulevard and, within minutes, a Carmichael neighborhood.
