Press Release: Arrest made in shooting homicide.

On Saturday evening, San Leandro PD arrested Samuel Langworthy for shooting and killing a woman in the parking lot of Chili’s Grill & Bar at Bayfair Center just a few hours earlier. 48-year-old Samuel Langworthy, of Oakland, was taken into custody by California Highway Patrol officers after his vehicle was spotted on Interstate 5 near Coalinga, CA. 
The homicide was preceded by a verbal altercation between Langworthy and an adult daughter of his current domestic partner.  During the confrontation, Langworthy retrieved a handgun from his vehicle and shot the victim once in the head at close range. 
The firearm used in the shooting has not been recovered.  Langworthy informed investigators he discarded it somewhere along the freeway but would not provide more specific details on the location.
“The San Leandro Police Department would like to express our gratitude to the officers of the California Highway Patrol, Central Division”, said Lieutenant Abe Teng.  “Their assistance in locating Langworthy allowed us to provide the victim’s family the swift justice they deserve.”
This case will be presented to the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office on Tuesday for charging.
