Police arrest 1 in LA family shooting

DOWNEY, Calif. (AP) - Police say they have arrested a man they previously detained who matched the description of a gunman who killed three people and injured two others in Downey earlier this week.

Police Sgt. Maria Villegas confirmed the arrest Friday after the man had been detained and questioned. The man's name and age were not immediately released.

Authorities brought the man in after a black Camaro that was stolen was found following Wednesday's shooting at a family owned fire extinguisher business and a relative's nearby home.

Police haven't given a motive but they said they don't believe the killings were a random act of violence.
