A 19-year-old suspect in the fatal shooting of a man in downtown Carson City has been taken into custody by sheriff’s deputies. Samuel Cocking was detained shortly after the incident on Wednesday night, according to Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong, and he was in possession of a semi-automatic weapon that was missing a valid serial number. He had a Texas-issued identity card with him.
In the Carson City Jail, where he was booked on suspicion of open murder, having a firearm with a changed or removed serial number, and carrying a hidden weapon without a licence, Cocking was being held without bond on Thursday. The victim is an adult man, but his name has not been made public. Authorities claim that when he came into contact with the suspect, he was walking on the sidewalk on East William Street near North Stewart Street with his son and a friend.
After some altercation, the defendant allegedly reached into his pocket for a revolver and shot the victim, according to Furlong. When patrol units arrived, Cocking was still at the shooting scene, the source claimed. It’s unclear if they have a lawyer or if one will be assigned to them for their upcoming court appearance. 2022 The Associated Press Copyright. Toutes droits réservés.
