Santa Rosa police on Monday afternoon arrested a Sacramento County man suspected of killing a San Rafael man during a drug deal last month.
David Espinal, 46, was booked into Sacramento County Jail and is the second suspect arrested following the Aug. 31 fatal shooting of Max Weinreb, 21, at the Vagabond Inn on Cleveland Avenue in Santa Rosa, police said.
Espinal and Donald Paul Parker, 35, of Vallejo, were in a room at the motel to buy marijuana from Weinreb and another unidentified man, Santa Rosa police Lt. Dave Linscomb said.
The deal somehow went wrong and Espinal shot Weinreb several times in the torso, Linscomb said. Weinreb died at the scene and Parker and Espinal fled with a large quantity of marijuana in a red sedan.
Parker was arrested last Wednesday in Vallejo, Linscomb said. He was charged with murder and is scheduled to be in Sonoma County Superior Court on Wednesday.
