A Walnut Grove man has been arrested in the death of a man whose body was found Saturday in a slough south of Clarksburg.

Jorge Garcia, 22, was arrested after a search warrant was served Tuesday morning in the 4500 block of East Ryer Road in Solano County, according to a Yolo County Sheriff’s Office news release. Garcia was booked into the Yolo County jail on suspicion of murder in the death of Andrew Phaouthoum, 21 of Sacramento.

Deputies were dispatched about 11:25 a.m. Saturday to the area of Jefferson Boulevard and Courtland Road, where fishermen had found Phaouthoum’s body. Phaouthoum died of a gunshot wound, sheriff’s officials said.

The investigation is continuing, and detectives are looking into a possible motive for the shooting.
