Homicide Detectives from the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office identified Kailin Deshai Jackson Harris (27) of Sacramento County as the suspect in the January 17, 2022 shooting death of Gennadiy Ivanovich Mironov.

Once deputies arrived, they say they learned that a man on a bike had been burglarizing nearby homes in the area overnight.

At the time of the shooting, deputies said someone had gone into the backyard of the Mironov's residence that has a detached structure with a gun safe inside.

They believe the burglar was inside the building and likely gained access to the guns from the safe, according to Sergeant Rodney Grassman with the Sacramento County Sheriff's Office. 

Mironov confronted the burglar and was shot multiple times in the upper body and transported to a local hospital, where he later died.

SCSO did not release any new information other than the arrest and identity of Harris.
