City of Rancho Cordova Rancho Cordova Police Department

January 3, 2016


On January 2, 2016, homicide detectives arrested Marcus Gammage, 19, for the murder of 23 year old Darien McLaurin which occurred in the early morning hours of January 1, 2016.
A little before 2:00 a.m. on January 1, 2016, the Sheriff’s Communication Center received a 911 call regarding someone shot in the 3200 block of Nosler Court in Rancho Cordova.  Rancho Cordova Police officers responded to the scene and located the victim on the ground outside of a residence.  Officers immediately began life saving measures.  Sacramento Metro Fire responded to the scene, and transported the victim to the hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

Investigators learned that a small party was being held at the residence.  The party was in the process of breaking up, when some sort of dispute occurred outside the residence between Gammage and the victim.  At some point, Gammage produced a gun and shot the victim.

Gammage was located in Tracy, California and arrested without incident.  He was booked at the Sacramento County Main Jail on the charge of murder.  He is currently ineligible for bail, and is scheduled to be arraigned in Sacramento County Superior Court on January 5, 2015.

The investigation is still ongoing, and detectives are asking anyone with information relating to this incident, to please contact the Sheriff’s Department at (916) 874-5115 or Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP.  Tip information may also be left anonymously at, by texting 274637 (CRIMES) and entering the keyword ‘SSD’, or by calling (916) 874-TIPS (8477).
