Suspect arrested in killing of California police officer

Suspected cop killer

A suspected drunken driver accused of killing a California police officer who pulled him over was captured Friday as he tried to flee back to Mexico, where he lived before illegally crossing into the USA, authorities said.

A two-day statewide manhunt ended Friday with the arrest of Gustavo Perez Arriaga, who came out with his hands up as a SWAT team prepared to raid a home in Bakersfield, California.

"We will find him, we will arrest him and we will bring him to justice", the sheriff said.

A day later and almost 200 miles (320 kilometers) south, Youngblood says he received information that Perez Arriaga was between Modesto and Bakersfield and heading to Mexico.

Cpl. Ronil Singh, 33, was shot and killed early Wednesday morning, shortly after he radioed in that he was pulling over a gray pickup truck with no license plates in the small town of Newman, Calif., according to the Associated Press.

Cpl. Ronal Singh, who came to the US from his native Fiji, was shot early Wednesday after stopping the man he suspected of driving drunk in Newman.

Mr Singh was born in Fiji but migrated to the U.S. to become a police officer.

The sheriff's office did not respond when Newsweek asked whether the suspect had previously committed crimes.

"This is new for our department", Richardson said. He added Suspect was originally pulled over on suspicion of a DUI when a gunfight broke out.

Singh, a 33-year-old with a newborn son, was an "American patriot", Newman Police Chief Randy Richardson said during an emotional news conference on Thursday. He came to the United States from Fiji, authorities said. "I'd like to thank you working day and night to make this happen". The sheriff said that they lied to investigators while in custody.

Adrian Virgen and Erik Razo Quiroz were arrested yesterday for allegedly helping Arriaga escape after he allegedly shot and killed Newman Police Corporal Ronil "Ron" Singh. Both face charges of accessory after the fact to a felony.

Gov. Jerry Brown has said the law strikes a balance between protecting families and ensuring consequences for serious criminals. "Time to get tough on Border Security".

As he clutched the left side of his chest, the distraught sibling said he'd been waiting for the capture of his brother's killer.

The sheriff leading the investigation blamed California's sanctuary law for preventing local authorities from reporting Gustavo Perez Arriaga to USA immigration officials for two previous drunken driving arrests.

The three have been identified as Bernabe Madrigal Castaneda, 59; Erasmo Villegas, 36; and Maria Luisa Moreno, 57, he was quoted in as saying in the report.

Homan defended the policy of constructing a border wall as an important piece of immigration enforcement, while admitting that he didn't know how the suspect gained entry into the country.
