Last month, Sacramento police detectives were called out to a shopping center parking lot on the 3600 block of Truxel Road after a reported shooting. Walter Gibson, 53, suffered gunshot wounds to his upper body and died from his injuries.

Detectives later determined that the shooting was drug related.

Detectives identified Brown and Bunch as the primary suspects in the shooting death.

Bunch was arrested Tuesday morning in Alameda County without incident.
