Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputies say a 16-year-old boy was arrested Tuesday night in connection with a killing inside a Rio Linda home.

Investigators found 54-year-old Billy Joe Stidman with a gunshot wound inside his home Sunday night on Dolphin Way. Stidman was taken to the hospital but died from his wounds.

According to deputies, the teen was an “invited guest” in Stidman’s home and the two got into an argument, which allegedly led to the shooting.
