47-year-old Jeremy David Virgo has been arrested for Murder.

Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to a report of suspicious shots fired around 12:40 p.m. February 11, 2018 in the area of Timber Wolf Drive and Alder Street in Tahoma, California. A deputy says when he showed up, he could hear gunshots coming from the area of a known felon's address. A short time later, the deputy saw the suspected person leaving the home. That led to a pursuit and the suspect was taken into custody by Placer County Sheriff's deputies at Homewood Ski Resort.

When deputies conducted a welfare check at the address in Tahoma, they found a body. The victim's name won't be released until family is notified.

The El Dorado County Sheriff's Office says this is an active investigation spanning between two counties with multiple crime scenes. Investigators say there is no reason to believe there are any safety threats in Tahoma or El Dorado and Placer Counties regarding this incident.
