RICHMOND — Bond was set at $1.1 million for a murder suspect in custody in Nebraska—pending extradition to Contra Costa County. Arcencio J. Fernandez-Marquez, 30, allegedly shot two victims in Richmond before fleeing from California. 

Responding Richmond officers found two victims at an apartment on Richmond Parkway on the night of June 23. Elizander Narvaez-Fernandez, 26, was subsequently pronounced dead at the scene. The second gunshot victim was transported to a hospital for medical treatment. 

Investigators learned that a fight erupted at the party, which escalated to deadly gunfire. Richmond police said in a prepared statement. “Detectives quickly developed information leading to the suspect. The victim and suspect were known to each other.” 

An arrest warrant was obtained for Fernandez-Marquez of Richmond, and the vehicle that he used to flee. An automated license plate reader near Ogallala, NE, detected the vehicle traveling on June 25. Three local agencies responded to the alert. 

Ogallala police arrested the suspect with assistance from the Nebraska State Patrol and Keith County (NE) Sheriff’s Office. Fernandez-Marquez was booked into Keith County (NE) Jail on suspicion of murder and carrying a concealed weapon. 

The Richmond police said. “Our detectives will continue to work to ensure that he is held accountable. He will remain in custody in Nebraska awaiting extradition back to California.”
