Fresno police said alleged killer Nicholas House was in a white Chevy Malibu stopped by a patrol officer shortly after the shooting and was found with two semi-automatic firearms.

“After speaking with House, detectives determined he was responsible for the shooting deaths of Diaz and Golding,” the Fresno Police Department said in a news release.

Driving the car: a 16-year-old male juvenile, who was interviewed by detectives and released.
