SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A correctional officer in full uniform was shot to death in his south Sacramento garage as he prepared for work Wednesday morning – a brazen crime that reverberated across the state.
Sacramento police described Steve Lo's slaying as an "extremely disturbing crime." A corrections official lamented "a great loss." Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger called for Capitol flags to be flown at half-staff.
