Grief-stricken family members and angry Riverside residents might be one step closer to getting some answers in the Sunday slaying of Riverside police officer Ryan P. Bonaminio, 27, as a suspect was arrested outside a Target Store at about 8 p.m. last night, according to the LA Times.

Earl Ellis Green, 44, was picked up by police and FBI agents and booked on suspicion of murder and a parole violation. Green has a criminal record spanning thirty years which includes convictions for domestic violence, battery of a police officer, selling drugs and vehicle theft. In 2007, he was sentenced to three years in state prison for vandalism.
