ANAHEIM (AP) — An Orange County man has been arrested in the shooting death of his 20-year-old girlfriend.
Anaheim police say 20-year-old Samuel Montes was detained Saturday after fleeing the scene of his girlfriend Nicole Gutierrez’s shooting.
Police had earlier found Gutierrez with gunshot wounds at an Anaheim home where shooting had been reported. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators learned Montes had been at the scene at the time of the shooting but had fled. He was later arrested on suspicion of Gutierrez’s murder and his being held on $1 million bail.
