Suspect in Arden Arcade shooting arrested; victim gunned down near 7-Eleven identified

A man, accused in what witnesses called a drive-by shooting outside an Arden Arcade convenience store, was arrested by Sacramento County sheriff’s deputies, authorities said Friday.

Deputies were called just before 12:30 a.m. to the 1300 block of Fulton Avenue at Hurley Way after reports of gunfire outside the 7-Eleven.

James Roseman, 38, was shot in the parking lot, which also features a 24-Hour Fitness and Pizza Guys. He suffered a gunshot wound, and was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead, deputies said.

Investigators arrested Joseph Paul Demarco, 47, in Arden Arcade on Tuesday.

Demarco, who was arraigned Wednesday in Sacramento Superior Court, was charged with murder and possessing a firearm. He’s being held on $500,000 bail and is scheduled to appear again in court on Thursday.

The investigation into the shooting remains ongoing, deputies said.
