A Suisun City man was arrested after a woman was shot and killed Tuesday night.
According to the Daily Republic, Ryan Moore, 33, was arrested hours after the victim, identified as 41-year-old Bettina Brown, was found shot in a bedroom at her home on the 900 block of Steller Way, said Commander Tim Mattos. Police believe the shooting occurred at 8:30 p.m.
According to the Daily Republic, Moore stated that he was innocent while he was being placed in a police vehicle. A second man, said to have been staying as a guest in the home of the victim, was held for questioning, but later released.
On Wednesday, a .22 caliber rifle was found at the scene of the shooting by a neighbor. Mattos said tall grass and darkness on Tuesday night made it difficult to spot the rifle.
Police are investigating the shooting. They do not believe there was an argument or struggle preceding the shooting death of Brown.
