R.I.P. Markeise "Killa Keise" Henry















Vallejo police investigators have identified the 28-year-old man found shot to death just before midnight Thursday along Interstate 80 as Markeise Henry of Benicia.

Henry was found inside a Pontiac that had crashed into trees and bushes on the shoulder of Interstate 80 around 11 p.m.. He appears to have been driving alone in his car when he was shot multiple times, said Vallejo police Detective Mat Mustard and Sgt. Joe Iacono.

Iacono said that California Highway Patrol officers and the Vallejo Fire Department had responded to what was initially reported at 11:58 p.m. as a traffic collision on eastbound I-80. They found the vehicle in the bushes on the highway shoulder between Tennessee Street and Redwood Parkway.

An agreement between the Vallejo Police Department and the California Highway Patrol shifts homicide and other serious crime investigations involving state highways to Vallejo investigators, Vallejo police Lt. Lee Horton said.

Inside the crashed vehicle, responders found Henry, who had received a number of gunshot wounds to his upper body, and was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

No suspects had been arrested in the case as of Friday afternoon, police said. Mustard said police were not yet ready to reveal further details.

Iacono said that the Vallejo Police Department's Major Case Squad and Crime Suppression Unit were called to investigate and have interviewed known witnesses. The homicide was the city's 13th in 2011, and the first since Aug.7Vallejo police investigators have identified the 28-year-old man found shot to death just before midnight Thursday along Interstate 80 as Markeise Henry of Benicia.
