CASE: Brian Sholl (Case #15F04686)
PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Casey Newton, Homicide Unit
Brian Sholl was convicted by a jury for the second-degree murder of Brian Haywood. The jury also found true the allegation that Sholl personally and intentionally discharged a firearm causing death.
On July 29, 2015, Brian Sholl shot Brian Haywood to death outside of a residence in the North Highlands area. Prior to the shooting, Mr. Haywood had been drinking outside of the house with several individuals. Later that night, Sholl arrived with a friend. Mr. Haywood, who was intoxicated, asked Sholl where he lived. When Sholl told Mr. Haywood he was from North Highlands, Mr. Haywood yelled back that he was from Del Paso Heights and verbally “disrespected” North Highlands. Mr. Haywood then challenged Sholl to a physical fight. Sholl then walked over to his car, retrieved a handgun, stood in front of Mr. Haywood and fired several shots at close range. Mr. Haywood was shot seven times and died at the scene. Sholl fled in his car, but was later identified by a witness as the shooter.
Sholl faces a maximum sentence of 40 years to life in prison. Sentencing is set for August 11, 2017, at 9:00 a.m. in Department 40 before the Honorable Raoul Thorbourne.
