Convicted murderer sentenced to 118 years in shooting death at Sacramento homeless camp

A man convicted in the shooting death of one person and wounding of another was sentenced this morning at Sacramento Superior Court.

Chue Xiong was sentenced to 118 years by Judge Geoffrey Goodman following his November 5 conviction of the  Mario Perez-Arzola, attempted murder and being a felon in possession of a firearm. It was also found that Xiong used a firearm in the commission of the murder and attempted murder and that he had previously been convicted of a felony strike offense, first-degree residential burglary. 

On October 18, 2018, Xiong approached one of the victims in a homeless camp and demanded to know where someone was while holding the victim at gunpoint. Mr. Perez-Arzola walked up to Xiong and was able to calm him down, but Xiong then inexplicably shot Mr. PerezArzola in the chest, killing him and wounding the other victim.
