A 42-year-old man was arrested in Stanislaus County on Saturday in connection with a fatal shooting in San Jose a day earlier, police said Monday.
San Jose resident Robert Eugene Styre is accused of the fatal shooting reported at 12:40 p.m. Friday in the 1500 block of Parkmoor Avenue.
Officers arrived and found a male victim suffering from at least one gunshot. The victim, whose name hasn't been released, died a short time later at a hospital, according to San Jose police.
Homicide detectives were able to identify Styre as the suspect in the shooting and learned he had connections to Stanislaus County, so notified local law enforcement agencies.
At about 1:15 a.m. a Ceres police officer pulled over a vehicle associated with Styre and found him inside. He was arrested without incident and was eventually transported back to Santa Clara County Jail to be booked on suspicion of murder, police said.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Detective Sgt. Anthony Kilmer at (408) 277-5283.
