Natomas restaurant shooter sentenced 50 years to life | Crime
SACRAMENTO, CA - A man who fired eight shots into his victim in front of a Natomas restaurant last year, killing him was sentenced 50 years to life in prison in a Sacramento courtroom Thursday.
Marcus Davis was convicted by a Sacramento Superior Court jury in May of the first-degree murder of Chester Jackson on Feb. 20, 2011. Jurors also found Davis guilty of peronally using a firearm.
The shooting took place outside of an IHOP restaurant.
According to the Sacramento County District Attorney's Office, Davis had been in the restaurant and had also been drinking. He was accused of starting a confrontation with Jackson, who was with friends, outside the restaurant.
Davis then pulled out a gun and started shooting Jackson, saying, "I told you this was going to happen," according to eyewitness testimony.
