Sacramento, Ca- US Marshals from Sacramento arrested a man in connection with a July murder in Stockton.
Eric Mathew Tabin was taken into custody Friday afternoon when a sting was set up after they learned he would attempt to buy a handgun from a local dealer.
Tabin was approaching a gun dealership on Fruitridge Road to make the purchase but was taken into custody as he was walking to the door. The release says he was surrounded by law enforcement and taken into custody without incident.
The Marshal's office says they were contacted by the Stockton Police Department to help locate Tabin because he was believed to be involved in an ambush style shooting that claimed the life of one man and left another critically injured back in July.
The man believed to be the shooter had already been arrested.
