Third Suspect Arrested in Connection to Homicide on Hillsdale Boulevard

Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department Major Crimes Bureau detectives arrested 20-year-old Sacramento resident Antoine Lee Taylor for his connection to the recent murder of 54-year-old taxi cab driver James Walker. Taylor was arrested in the 3500 block of Sunrise Pines Drive in Rancho Cordova. Taylor is the third suspect arrested for this murder. Jermaine Campbell was arrested on October 19, 2010 and Jonathan Hudson was arrested on October 20, 2010. No additional arrests in this case are expected.

On October 18, 2010, at 3:14 a.m., Sheriff’s deputies responded to an apartment complex in the 5100 block of Hillsdale Boulevard regarding the report of a shooting. When deputies arrived they found a taxi in the parking lot of the apartment complex. The taxi-driver, James Walker, was sitting in the driver’s seat and suffering from at least one gunshot wound to his upper body. Paramedics arrived a short time later and pronounced him dead at the scene.

Sheriff’s Homicide detectives believe Taylor, Campbell, and Hudson had been visiting friends at the Hillsdale apartment complex and called a taxi with the intent to rob the driver. When Walker arrived at the complex he was confronted by the suspects and shot during the course of the robbery.

Taylor was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail and charged with murder and robbery. He is ineligible for bail. He is scheduled to be arraigned on October 22, 2010, at 1:30 p.m. in Department 61.
