A 20-year-old Fresno man has been arrested, accused of shooting and killing a local high school football player and then disguising the murder to make it look like an accident.
Terrance Lee was arrested Tuesday morning and charged with murder.
Lee is accused of killing 18-year-old Marquis Sutton. Sutton was shot Monday night inside a friend's apartment.
The Edison High School cornerback was inside his friend's apartment with a few friends around 7:00 p.m. Monday night.
Homicide investigators say one of the friends, 20-year-old Terrance Lee teased him about a sprained ankle before pulling a revolver trigger twice and firing, like a disturbing game of Russian Roulette.
Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said, "The suspect, Lee, opened the cylinder, spun it with one round, closed it, pointed the gun at Marquis Sutton and pulled the trigger a second time, struck Marquis Sutton in the upper left back and that round exited the right side of his neck."
Chief Dyer says the suspect got rid of the gun and dragged Sutton's body out to the sidewalk to make it look like a drive-by shooting, but he clarified this was no accident nor was it gang related. "We do know we found marijuana and meth inside of apartment, but we do not know what was occurring prior to shooting."
Fresno Unified Superintendent Michael Hanson called in a dozen psychologists to help students cope on campus and he's calling out to the community to get involved. "It's a call to our community, not just parents but all adults, to pay close attention to details of case and discuss them with kids," said Hanson.
Police still don't have a motive for the shooting and are still looking for that revolver used to shoot Sutton.
