DeAngelo Eagleton
Chico police arrested Emeryville murder suspect DeAngelo Eagleton after detectives served a search warrant for an apartment in the Northern California town Wednesday morning.  Mr Eagleton, age 18 has been sought in connection with the murder of Emeryville resident and high school student Taranda Jones.
Seeking a suspect related to a number of robberies during the past few weeks in Chico, police detectives entered an apartment at 1114 Nord Avenue before dawn and detained a male and female.  The male gave a false name to officers but through fingerprint analysis it was determined to be Mr Eagleton.  Also identified was a female, Aimee Ellinson, age 22 and a three year old child.  A stolen handgun and marijuana was also found in the apartment.

Mr Eagleton is alleged to be the murderer of fellow Emery High School student Taranda Jones, aged 18 last May.  Ms Jones was found by Emeryville Police with a single gunshot wound to the chest at her home on 47th Street in the Triangle neighborhood.

Mr Eagleton is also wanted by Oakland Police in connection with violent crimes including assault with a deadly weapon in that town.
