Police in Salinas have arrested a man in connection with the shooting death of a Bakersfield man last week. Seth Michael Faulkner, 25, has been arrested on suspicion of murder in the shooting death of Alexander Rene Durazo, 28, according to the Salinas Police Department. On June 7, Durazo was shot several times while at the Motel 6 at 140 Kern St., police said.
He was transported to a hospital where he was later pronounced deceased. Witnesses told police they saw a man in a gray sweatshirt and dark pants running toward a drainage ditch just west of the motel. Investigators were able to develop enough evidence to arrest Faulkner for the murder, and he was taken into custody without incident, police said. Police announced the arrest Thursday. The shooting was the 19th homicide of the year in Salinas.
