SALEM, Ore. — A man sought by Salem police in a fatal shooting has been detained near the Canadian border.

Lt. Dave Okada said Tuesday that arrangements are being made to return 22-year-old Cristian Acosta to Oregon.

Police had been looking for Acosta since 20-year-old Lucia Pamatz was found dead Monday afternoon.

Officers discovered the victim after responding to a reported disturbance at a Salem home. Okada says multiple shots were fired.
