A caller alerted Sacramento County sheriff's deputies to the shooting, and identified the suspect as Daniel Weddle. Then, a relative of Weddle's called to say the suspect was en route to a home in Rio Linda, according to sheriff's officials.

Deputies caught up with Daniel Weddle there. They arrested him and booked him into the Sacramento County Main Jail on suspicion of murder, assault with a deadly weapon and making threats, according to booking records.

Daniel Weddle does not appear to have a criminal record in Sacramento County, according to online Superior Court records.
