A 30-year-old man was arrested Saturday in connection with a fatal shooting earlier this month in the parking lot of a North Natomas apartment complex, Sacramento police report.
Dominique Nelson was arrested near West Elkhorn Boulevard and East Commerce Way in North Natomas during a traffic stop, according to a police department news release. He was booked at 2:35 p.m. into Sacramento County jail on suspicion of murder and is being held without bail.
