Anthony Solima, 29, was arrested on a murder warrant after detectives viewed surveillance footage and determined he had shot his colleague in a parking lot Monday afternoon, Fremont Police Department Captain Fred Bobbitt told DailyExpertNews.
The coroner is working to confirm the identity of the victim, police said.
Detectives determined that the suspect and the victim had an argument earlier in the day, police said.
Solima had suddenly resigned before shooting his colleague, according to a preliminary police investigation. The victim had just finished a shift before being shot, police said.
Authorities patrolled Solima after the incident and made an arrest without incident, they said.
Through a search warrant, police found a loaded short-barreled rifle in the suspect’s vehicle, as well as a worn casing nearby, they said. Several gun cases were also found earlier at the crime scene.
Solima was transported to the Fremont Police Department for questioning and was admitted to Santa Rita Prison. There are no open suspects and police say they do not believe there is an additional risk to the community.
DailyExpertNews is in the process of determining whether Solima has retained legal representation.
