Victim in Old Sacramento shooting identified; suspects appear in court

Local News

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — One of the two people killed in a shooting late Friday in Old Sacramento was identified Monday while the two suspects made their first court appearance.

Alex Cerda, 21, was a father to a 3-year-old boy, according to his wife on GoFundMe.

The other person who died in the shooting has not been identified. Four other people were hurt in the incident.

Investigators said they believe some type of fight preceded the shooting, and several guns were found at the scene near Joe’s Crab Shack. Police later identified the suspects as 22-year-old Marcus Trull and 21-year-old Cedric Salcedo.

It will be August before the men accused of last weekend’s deadly shooting spree will make formal pleas in the case.

Both Salcedo and Trull were just retaining counsel, which is why Tuesday’s scheduled arraignment was pushed back until the middle of next month.

They did hear what charges they’re officially facing.

Salcedo and Trull are accused of using semi-automatic weapons when they started firing Friday night near Joe’s Crab Shack.

Sacramento police won’t say if the incident was gang-related, just that they are looking at all available leads.

Trull is also facing one count of driving under the influence from last September that he will be arraigned on in August, along with charges tied to the shooting.
