The victim, later identified as 60-year-old Lufino Reyes Mejorado, was taken to a local hospital, where he died a short time later, authorities said.

KCRA 3 reported the victim was shot in the arm and was given CPR on scene.

At the time, police said they closed down I-5 at Interstate 80 so they could canvass the area where the shooting took place and it was closed for several hours.

Witnesses told police the suspect was driving a white Mercedes sedan and after an investigation, 33-year-old David Perry was arrested and booked into the Sacramento County Jail.
