OROVILLE, Calif. - Butte County Sheriff's Office has identified the person who died in Tuesday's Oroville shooting.
25-year-old Markell Anderson of Oroville was shot and killed in Oroville Tuesday morning, deputies said.
Butte County Sheriff's deputies began to help Oroville Police officers with the investigation immediately.
Oroville police said they received a phone call around 3:30 a.m. about a report of a shot fired.
Officers responded to the 3000 block of Burlington Ave. in Oroville where they found a man inside the residence who was suffering from a gunshot wound. Medical personnel arrived on the scene and determined the man was dead.
"Really sad. That was someone's grandson, son, or brother," said Richard Overturf, a man who came to check out the scene.
Detectives gathered information and determined Isom Brown, 27, of Oroville is suspected of murder.
Brown was located by detectives during a traffic enforcement stop in Oroville. Brown was booked into the Butte County Jail.
People in Oroville are reacting to this news, some fearful.
"I got little kids and I don't want them to grow up with around this stuff," Overturf said. "One day it could be one of my kids who catches a bullet or knife."
Overturf said the violence has gotten so bad he's moved his family out of south Oroville.
"I've lived around here all my life, and violence is increasing every day," Overturf said.
Overturf said in a separate incident, the motive for moving was, "when my friend got shot in the face, over a bad drug deal. That changed me right there saying it was time for me to go."
The investigation is ongoing.
Anyone with information on this case can contact the Butte County Sheriff's Office or the Oroville Police Department.
