SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A suspected drunk driver accused of fatally shooting the California police officer who pulled him over was captured Friday as he tried to flee back to Mexico, where he lived before illegally crossing into the US, authorities said.

If the suspect had been deported, he said, Cpl. Ronil Singh of the tiny Newman Police Department would still be alive.
