Sacramento police have arrested a 35-year-old man in connection with the fatal shooting Wednesday night of Jesse James Nunez.
Nunez, 36, was found at 15th and S streets about 8:41 p.m. after a patrol sergeant heard several gunshots, and a witness reported that a shooting had just occurred and people were seen scattering from the area.
Police spokesman Officer Doug Morse said representatives of another law enforcement agency arrested Elpidio Tellez on warrants just south of the area that police were searching last night. Aware of the shooting and the search that was under way, they notified Sacramento police of the arrest.
Morse said Sacramento police investigators interviewed Tellez today and arrested him on suspicion of homicide in Nunez's death. Morse said he did not have any information on the what led to the shooting.
