Man Arrested in Portland Church Shooting

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - U.S. marshals in California have arrested
a 30-year-old Oregon man sought for a fatal shooting at a church
last month.

Latwan Brown was taken into custody Tuesday at his mother's home
in Hayward, Calif.

Brown has been charged with killing 31-year-old Darshawn Cross at a funeral for Cross's grandmother Dec. 12 at the New Hope Missionary Baptist Church in Portland.

Police say at least four subsequent shootings, at least two of them fatal, appear linked to the killing at the church.
