Suspected cop killer

The Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department was scheduled to hold a press conference at noon, . He faces a homicide charge. Ronil Singh on Friday morning in Bakersfield, Calif., officials have confirmed.

The sheriff also announced that photos circulating on social media of the suspect are of the man "who murdered Corporal Ronil Singh". Singh exchanged gunfire with the suspect. Singh was located near his own vehicle. Investigators have recovered the truck in which the suspect allegedly fled.

Authorities are circulating several photos of the alleged gunman.

Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson comforts a tearful Newman, Calif., Police Chief Randy Richardson during a press conference on December 27, 2018.

Homan defended the policy of constructing a border wall as an important piece of immigration enforcement, while admitting that he didn't know how the suspect gained entry into the country.

"We are actively investigating every lead, we have spared no expense, we have multiple teams following up every lead, and we will relentlessly continue to hunt our suspect down and bring him to justice so we can bring closure to this community and this police department", stated Christianson.

The shooter, later identified as 32-year-old Gustavo Perez Arriaga, was arrested in Kern County. A gray, extended cab Dodge Ram pickup was seen in the area at the time of the shooting. It had paper license plates.

Gov. Jerry Brown has said the law strikes a balance between protecting families and ensuring consequences for serious criminals. Christianson didn't say when the 33-year-old came to the USA but that the Mexico native has been living here for several years. Why are we providing sanctuary for criminals?

Perez Arriaga crossed the border in Arizona several years ago and had worked a variety of jobs as a laborer, including at several dairies. Her killer had been deported from the US multiple times. He thanked the Department of Homeland Security, ICE, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and U.S. Customs for assisting in the manhunt. He said he asked the county to declare Kern a non-sanctuary county. He discharged his gun while trying to defend himself. All are undocumented, the sheriff said. Both face charges of accessory after the fact to a felony. Ronil Singh was arrested. He and his wife, Anamika, had recently welcomed a baby boy. They lived in Modesto.

Singh was a native of Fiji. He earned a college degree in his native country in 2003.

Christianson said Virgen and Quiroz were also in the United States illegally.

While working toward his degree, Singh was also employed by the city of Turlock. He previously served with the Merced County Sheriff's Department, according to a statement from California Gov.

During Thursday's press conference, Newman Police Chief Randy Richardson tearfully said, "You have to understand this was not supposed to happen here". He called the 33-year-old with a newborn son an "American patriot".
