Around 5:30 a.m. Wednesday, less than 12 hours after the shooting, Ronald Seay, 56, was arrested in the area of Elverta following a brief police chase, according to the police department. He is in custody on suspicion of murder and shooting into an occupied vehicle.

Seay is suspected of shooting 41-year-old Amber Clark several times in the parking lot of the North Natomas Public Library, where she worked as branch supervisor. The police department reports Clark was targeted by Seay.

On Oct. 13, Sacramento Police Sgt. Vance Chandler reports Seay caused a disturbance at the library. Clark was working at the time and interacted with Seay during the incident. Officers responded and issued a no-trespass order to Seay.

Chandler reports Seay lived within miles of the shooting and had moved there months ago from out of state.

Investigators have recovered several firearms from Seay, who is suspected of using a handgun to kill Clark, according to Chandler.

Seay’s bail has been set at $1 million and he will appear in court Friday.
