Suspect arrested over shooting death of Fiji-born California police officer

California officer's killing reignites sanctuary law fight

Arriaga, a criminal from Mexico, had crossed the USA border into Arizona illegally some time ago, Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson said at a separate news conference on Friday.

"We are saddened, grief, some anger, for the senseless killing of our wonderful friend, protector, family member", said Casey Graham, a Newman city council member and police officer in Modesto.

The brother of Singh spoke during a press conference after the tragedy, during which he shared his thankfulness for the law enforcement's capture and sorrow for his loss.

Singh had been with the Newman Police Department since July 2011, the sheriff's office said.

Two Honor Guard Viewings will be held on Friday, Jan. 4 at the Newman Community Meeting Room and the Salas Brothers Funeral Home.

The brother of a California cop, who was allegedly murdered by an illegal immigrant, broke into tears as he thanked authorities on Friday for finding his brother's killer.

"Corporal Ronil Singh immigrated to this country LEGALLY and put his life on the line to protect the American people".

The suspect accused of killing Singh has been identified as 32-year-old Guastavo Perez Arriaga.

"This is a criminal illegal alien with prior criminal activity that should have been reported to ICE", Christianson said.

After Thursday's press conference, President Trump weighed in on the manhunt on Twitter, using it to back his argument for the border wall, which many experts agree is not an effective deterrent for migrants looking to enter the U.S.

Three Vietnamese tourists, guide killed by Egypt roadside bomb
Another 10 suspected miltants were killed in North Sinai, where the country is fighting an insurgency led by Islamic State. Egypt's ministry of interior said that the raids had focused on three terrorist hideouts in North Sinai and Giza.

Christianson said the case highlighted the dangers of a California law passed in 2017 that placed limits on how closely law enforcement can cooperate with federal immigration agents to turn over inmates for deportation. Officials pleaded for help from the public and said they were following up on several leads. He came to the United States from Fiji, authorities said. Investigators were examining the vehicle, police said.

Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood told reporters that Gustavo Perez Arriaga came out of a home in Bakersfield with his hands up after SWAT officers came to arrest him Friday.

"This is new for our department", Richardson said. "He loved camping, loved hunting, loved fishing, loved his family".

That suggests law enforcement could have apprehended Perez Arriaga previously, de Leon said.

On his Facebook page, Singh posted pictures on Christmas Eve from a deep-sea fishing trip that produced a big haul of crabs and fish.
