SHERIFF: Arrest in Franklin Blvd. Homicide


Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office Homicide Detectives arrested Joel Tyrone Zeigler (31) of Sacramento County for the April 17, 2022 murder of Robert Earl Daniel (33). Zeigler will also be charged with the shooting and injury of three other subjects during this same incident. Zeigler is well known to law enforcement and is on formal searchable probation until 2034 in connection with a 2022 case, possession for sales of marijuana/hashish. Zeigler is being held in the Sacramento County Main Jail without bail and will appear in Dept. 62 on Tuesday April 26, 2022 to answer for the charges.

On Sunday, April 17, 2022, at approximately 12:16 a.m., the Sheriff’s Communications Center received a call in the 7200 block of Franklin Boulevard regarding a shooting that just occurred. The caller advised that someone had been shot and was lying in the parking lot of a local business.

Deputies responded and located two adult males and one adult female, each suffering from at least one gunshot wound. Deputies began performing life-saving measures on one male victim while awaiting fire personnel. Sacramento Metro Fire arrived a short time later and pronounced the subject deceased at the scene. The other two victims were transported by fire to local area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries. A fourth victim sustained life-threatening injuries and was transported to a local hospital by private vehicle before deputies arrived on scene.

Homicide detectives and Crime Scene investigators responded to the scene, interviewed witnesses and gathered evidence. No further information or suspect information is available at this time.

Since You're Here

…we have a small favor to ask you. More people are viewing news from PSN than ever before. Despite our growing popularity, we are struggling to provide you coverage about what is going on in our community. Currently, PSN consists of a small, part-time team of volunteers who pay out of their own pocket to bring you news.

We have not put up a paywall because people have a right to know what’s going on in our community. We cannot survive on advertising alone because advertising rates are collapsing-threatening the existence of many local news outlets.

PSN’s unmatched coverage takes a lot of time, money, and hard work. But we do it because we want to serve our community and you deserve to know what’s really going on around you.

PSN obviously puts a lot of time and effort into bringing news, real news, to Sacramento. There’s no bias, no filter, no agenda; just events unfolding as you would see on scene. Anyone who is concerned about public safety should look to these guys first, it may not always be pleasant but it’s always reality. -Scott H.

If everyone who values our reporting helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support PSN and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
