Sacramento-Area Cop Shooting Suspect Had Already Been Deported — Twice


Marcelo Marquez allegedly shot and killed a Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy and a Placer County Sheriff’s Deputy, and also allegedly shot and wounded a second Placer County deputy and a civilian on Friday. On Saturday, authorities revealed that the suspect — real name, Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte — had already been deported twice from the United States.

According to Sacramento’s KCRA, he was “sent back in to Mexico in 1997 and again in 2001.” 

The 1997 deportation was the result of “conviction in Arizona…on charges of possession of narcotics for sale.” He was arrested stateside in 2001 as well.

After the suspect allegedly shot three deputies and a civilian, he was apprehended in a residential area near Placer County High School. Janelle Marquez Monroy, the female who accompanied him during part of his shooting spree, was arrested earlier in the same day.

Both now face charges in the shooting deaths of the two deputies, along with other charges.
