MODESTO, Calif. – Authorities say the parolee accused of fatally shooting four Oakland police officers last month before being killed in a gunfight with police is a suspect in a home-invasion robbery in Modesto.
Police spokesman Sgt. Brian Findlen said Thursday that investigators believe Lovelle Shawn Mixon was one of two men to commit the robbery in February.

Police arrested the second suspect on Wednesday.
Authorities in Oakland say Mixon shot two motorcycle police officers after a routine traffic stop on March 21. He was killed later that day in a shootout at his sister's apartment that led to the deaths of two other officers.
