SACRAMENTO — The man suspected of fatally shooting a Richmond woman in front of her two kids Tuesday was arrested in Sacramento Wednesday, police said.

Richmond Police Lt. Felix Tan Police says Rashanda Franklin, 29, was killed in a targeted shooting Tuesday morning as she drove her children to day care in Richmond. She was found wounded behind the steering wheel and died at the scene. Her toddlers, both boys, were not hurt.
