Alleged Killer Runs Home to Hide

Albuquerque, NM – On June 15, 2013, Jashon Warren allegedly shot and killed Michael Moore outside the Bird of Paradise bar in southeast Albuquerque, NM. The Albuquerque Police Department obtained a warrant for Warren’s arrest charging him with Murder. Albuquerque Police Department (APD) Gang Unit Detectives developed information that Warren fled New Mexico and ran to his home town of Sacramento, CA.

On August 1, 2013, United States Marshals in Albuquerque, NM, were asked to assist in locating and arresting Jashon Warren in California. Deputy Marshals in New Mexico and California, working in conjunction with APD Gang Unit Detectives, were able to track Warren to the 2500 block of Kit Carson Street, Sacramento, CA. Deputy Marshals and task force Officers from the Eastern District of California, moved in to arrest Warren and that’s when Warren took off running. After two foot chases, 1 through a creepy cemetery at night, and a 2 hour game of hide and seek, Deputies were able to corner and contain Warren in an apartment in the 2600 block of Kit Carson Street in the Housing Projects of Sacramento.

Deputies surrounded the apartment and were able to call Warren out after several hours. Warren will be extradited back to New Mexico to face charges of Murder, Shooting at or from an Occupied Motor Vehicle, and Felon in Possession of a Firearm.
