An 18-year-old has been arrested on suspicion of homicide in the December shooting death of a woman driving her car in Sacramento, police said Thursday.

The victim, Shafiyyah Sade Roberts, 24, of Yuba City, was driving west with two passengers in the 1200 block of Isabel Street, north of downtown near Richards Boulevard at about 3 p.m. Dec. 23 when she was shot in the head.

The vehicle then veered off the road into a metal pole, then across the street to where it stopped on a sidewalk. The shooter fled.

Police announced Thursday they had arrested Dyllon Wolfe as a suspect in Roberts’ death. Wolfe was already in Sacramento County Jail after being arrested Feb. 18 on unrelated charges.

Police said at the time of the killing that a man and woman were in the car with Roberts. They left the scene but are not suspected in the killing, according to police.

No motive has been established for the killing.
