A suspect in what appeared to be a disgruntled employee shooting spree at a Richmond apartment complex was arrested in El Dorado County this morning, a Richmond police lieutenant said. The security officer who is believed to have shot at his supervisor around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday night in the 500 block of Hartnett Avenue was located by El Dorado County sheriff’s deputies and California Highway Patrol officers between 5:30 a.m. and 6 a.m. on U.S. Highway 50, according to Lt. Bisa French.
After a short pursuit, he was stopped and arrested. He is in custody in El Dorado County this morning, French said. The manhunt for the shooting suspect, 50-year-old Concord resident Doran Long Jr., began after two other security officers heard shots and ran toward the Richmond apartment security office and noticed their coworker shooting into the building. At least one of the security officers returned fire on the suspect, French said. Long was able to flee and drove away in a red Toyota Tacoma pickup truck, French said.
French said he fled with at least three weapons, including a rifle, handgun and shotgun. Long apparently had an altercation or dispute earlier Wednesday with his supervisor. He returned to the security office without warning that night and started firing at his supervisor, French said. The security supervisor is expected to survive his injuries from the shooting, French said. French said earlier Wednesday night before returning to his workplace that night Long had shot many rounds into his neighbor’s yard in Concord.
