PIERRE — A California homicide suspect was arrested in Pierre this week and will be held until extradition can be arranged, state law enforcement officials said.

In a tweet, the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) announced Thursday that state and local law enforcement in Pierre had assisted the San Diego Police Department with the apprehension of 42-year-old Bryan Parker.

At approximately 4:15 a.m. on May 16, several people called 911 to report a shooting in an alleyway to the northeast of downtown San Diego, Jud Campbell, a lieutenant with the San Diego Police Department told the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Officers arrived to discover 52-year-old Wendell Eddington lying in an alley with at least one gunshot wound.

Eddington was pronounced dead at the scene.
