Son of a bitch arrested:

Whether it's the right son of a bitch or not remains to be seen.

The guy apparently had a rifle, but he was apparently arrested for burglary.

I suppose they are testing the rifle

If he is the killer then at least he's off the "parks"

I bet that’s the f*#king guy. Living in the woods, breaking into buildings to steal food, taking random potshots at people.

because people who steal to eats are know to take pot shots at people whenever they find guns?

One incident involved buckshot, the guy that died was shot with a rifle.

I heard they're doing the ballistics testing/comparisons. Would be a big relief if this is the guy and they've got him now...

Huh
maybe different tests one quick but could be inconclusive one more thorough but takes longer? Maybe there are multiple shootings and they have to test the rifle and the shotgun. Maybe the shotgun testb takes longer. Or maybe that's just the answer the lab they sent it to gave them.

Shotguns are 'smooth bore' with many pellets in the usual load, which makes testing worthless . But if it fired a slug, the tests could reveal a match, but that would be rare due to lack of barrel rifling. Not many slug users out west.

They can match the impact marks on the primer on spent shells.

Plus, I have 12 bore slug guns with rifling that can be matched, but shotguns are normally loaded with shot; hence the name.

my hunch would be that most of these incidents are unrelated. I tend to avoid spending too much time around trail heads/car camping spots in the San Gabes as there are just some odd cats in the LA met area. Very surprised something like this would happen in Malibu creek though, reminds me of those bible college kids that were murdered in Jenner years back. Creepy.
