Police have arrested a man in connection with the quadruple homicide in a south Land Park neighborhood of Sacramento. On Thursday, Sacramento authorities said a possible suspect, Salvador Vasquez-Oliva had been detained. The relative had been unable to reach the victims, he said.

Police say a man suspected in the killings of two adults and two juveniles in Sacramento has been arrested.

Investigators identified Vasquez-Oliva as a suspect and he was subsequently detained by San Francisco police in the area of Pierce Street and Golden Gate Avenue.

"We developed information that led us to a potential suspect that was now in San Francisco at that time. but we're pretty confident that this was not a random act and we believe that the suspect is known to the victims", says Heinlein.

Sources also said that Vasquez-Oliva is the woman's estranged husband and the children's father.

At this time the names, sex, gender, and relationship of the victims are not being released to the public and will be completed by the Coroner's Office at a later time, police said.
