VALLEJO, CA – A man suspected in the shooting death of a woman in Vallejo early this week was arrested Wednesday at a Fairfield apartment complex, according to Vallejo police.
Edgar Medina, 24, is suspected of shooting 42-year-old Amber Fallin somewhere around the intersection of Sacramento Street and Yolo Avenue in Vallejo at about 7 a.m. Sunday morning, police said.
Investigators tracked Medina to an apartment in the 3700 block of Lyon Road in Fairfield, where he was arrested without a struggle, according to police.
Officers found a firearm in the apartment along with other evidence, police said.
