After being questioned by homicide detectives, Craig was arrested and booked (see booking photo below) into the Sacramento County Main Jail on the charge of murder.

The motive for the shooting is still under investigation. Anyone with information about this shooting is urged to call Homicide detectives at (916) 874-5115 or Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP; or send a text message tip by texting to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter SACTIP followed by the tip information.

Craig is being held without bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on October 14, 2009, at 1:30 p.m., in Department 63.
