Report: Suspect Arrested in Deputy Slaying

A suspect wanted in connection with the shooting death of a California sheriff's deputy was arrested Monday, according to FOX affiliate KTXL-TV.

It was not immediately clear if the suspect was Marco Topete, 35, who was wanted in connection to the shooting. Topete is on parole for assault with a deadly weapon.

The California Highway Patrol told the station that a suspect was arrested early Monday after Yolo County authorities launched a manhunt for him.

Yolo Sheriff's Capt. Robin Faille said the deputy, a 10-year veteran of the department, died overnight after being shot Sunday night.

Officers responding to a call that the deputy was shot found an abandoned baby in a car. The baby was reported safe.

Faille said officers had set up a large perimeter in the rural community of Dunnigan and were searching house-to-house. The search closed part of Interstate 5 to northbound traffic, creating a massive traffic backup.
