Sacramento police: Teen shoots, kills partner during robbery

SACRAMENTO, CA - Police have arrested 19-year-old Marquis Greenwood for the accidental shooting death of an 18-year-old acquaintance during an armed robbery Monday evening, according to authorities.

Sacramento police spokesman Sgt. Norm Leong said it all began just before 7 p.m. Monday when officers received a call of a gunshot victim taken to a mdeical clinic in the area of 30th and Q streets. The victim, identified as Tiekarian Troutman, later died from his injuries.

Investigators determined earlier that evening, Troutman, Greenwood and a 16-year-old girl attempted an armed robbery near 12th and E streets around 6:15 p.m.

Leong said during the robbery, a struggle ensued between one of the suspects and an employee of the business. At some point, investigators believe Green accidentally shot Troutman while trying to shoot an employee. Leong said Greenwood fled the scene but the girl stayed behind with Troutman.

Leong said investigators located Greenwood Tuesday around 7:30 p.m. near 14th Avenue and 42nd Street where he was arrested.

Greenwood faces charges of murder and attempted robbery. The teen girl was also arrested and charged with murder, attempted robbery and possession of narcotics.
