The Sacramento Police Department is releasing images of two suspects and three female associates caught on surveillance cameras just shortly before the murder of 27-year-old Chester Jackson.
On February 20, 2011, at 2:40 a.m., officers received a call to the 2900 block of Advantage Way on a subject who had been shot outside a restaurant. Officers arrived and found Chester Jackson shot on the sidewalk area in front of the business. Jackson was later declared deceased at the scene.
