UPDATE: Sheriff Jones tells FOX40 he stands by controversial video message

The man accused in these killings, Marcelo Marquez, had previously been deported a number of times.

“In the scope of today’s society, the inaction of our nationally elected officials has real consequences for the populace as a whole,” Jones wrote. “Now is the time to take this conversation out of coffee houses and talk shows to an audience who has the ability to affect real change.”

Marquez is accused of shooting Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver, carjacking his way to Auburn with his wife and shooting Placer County Sheriff’s Detective Michael Davis Jr. before ultimately surrendering to police.
