Placer County sheriff’s deputies arrested a suspect in a “suspicious death” Sunday after a chase that ended at Homewood Mountain Resort.

The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office received a call at 12:40 p.m. about suspicious gunfire near the intersection of Timber Wolf Drive and Alder Street in Tahoma.

The responding deputy heard gunshots upon arrival, apparently coming from the area of a known felon’s residence, officials said. The felon left the house and led the deputy on a chase that ended at the Homewood resort, about 2 1/2 miles northwest of Tahoma on the western shore of Lake Tahoe.

Placer County sheriff’s deputies helped in the chase and made the arrest, as Homewood is in Placer County.

When El Dorado deputies arrived at the address where the first deputy heard the gunshots, they found a dead person inside the home. The names and genders of the victim and the suspect have not been released.
