HUGHSON, Calif. (AP) – Authorities say a man wanted in the killing of Stanislaus County Sheriff’s deputy has been arrested.
The Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department says Deputy Dennis Wallace was shot and killed Sunday outside the city of Hughson while checking on a suspicious car.
They said Wallace, a 20-year veteran, was shot twice in the head near a fishing access spot outside the city of Hughson, about 10 miles southeast of Modesto.
The department says 36-year-old David Machado was arrested in Tulare County.
The department says it will have more information later Sunday.
