Suspect arrested & connection with serial killings



With the California city of Stockton on edge following a series of late-night shootings by an unknown assailant, police officials believe another killing was prevented with the arrest of a suspect this weekend.
Wesley Brownlee, 43, of Stockton, was taken into custody around 2 a.m. Saturday, clad in dark clothing with a mask around his neck and armed with a firearm, Stockton Police Chief Stanley McFadden said during a news conference.
“He was on a mission to kill. He was out hunting,” McFadden said. “We are sure we stopped another killing,” he added.
Brownlee was being held in the county jail Saturday without bail, according to jail records. He will be arraigned in court Tuesday afternoon, according to Salazar.
