Inmate Charged With Murder Flees California Hospital

Authorities in California are looking for a prisoner who escaped from a medical center in Placer County early on Sunday morning. The prisoner is accused of murder and was being held there.

Roseville police are telling people to be very careful if they see Eric J. Abril, who ran away from the Sutter Medical Center without a shirt and “thought to be wearing orange jail pants.”

The 35-year-old is being charged with murder, attempted murder, and kidnapping in connection with an event that happened in a Roseville park in April, the sheriff’s office and Roseville police said on Sunday.

“Suspect Abril was last seen on video surveillance walking in the area of Rainier Ct. in Rocklin at about 3:39 a.m. and then going north in the area of Saddletree Ln.,” Roseville police said in a Facebook post. “We ask people in the area to be very careful and to call 911 right away if they see Abril.”

Abril is facing “charges of murder, kidnapping causing bodily harm, and attempted murder on a police officer, among other charges,” the Placer County District Attorney’s Office said in an April news release. These charges are related to a shooting that happened in Roseville Park on April 6, 2023.

On Abril’s court record, it says that he is also being charged with personal firing of a firearm, among other things.

“Specifically, it is said that the suspect tried to kill a police officer in a Roseville park, which caused multiple injuries and the death of one person. The lawsuit also says that Abril kidnapped a victim and hurt them physically, as well as killed another victim during a kidnapping. The complaint also says that he had a gun while he was a convicted felon and that he had been convicted of a major or violent felony in the past, “ the DA’s office said in April.
