8 p.m. UPDATE: SACRAMENTO (AP) — Federal authorities say a man suspected of killing two deputies during a shooting rampage in Northern California was deported twice and has a drug conviction.

A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman said Saturday fingerprints of the suspected shooter confirm he was first deported to Mexico in 1997 after being convicted in Arizona for drug possession. He was arrested and repatriated to Mexico again in 2001.

Sacramento County sheriff’s authorities said the suspect identified himself as 34-year-old Marcelo Marquez of Salt Lake City. However, federal officials say his fingerprints match the biometric records for a Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte.

The suspect’s wife is also in custody following the shooting rampage that left two deputies dead, and two others victims wounded.

SACRAMENTO (CBS13/AP) — The suspects in the crime spree that resulted in the deaths of two California deputies are husband and wife, according to the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department.

Marcelo Marquez and Janelle Monroy were apprehended separately on Friday after an alleged crime spree that spanned from the Motel 6 on Arden Way in Sacramento, up Interstate 80 to Auburn.

Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer County Sheriff’s Det. Mike Davis were shot and killed hours apart. Deputy Jeff Davis was treated for a gunshot wound to the arm. The two deputies are not related.

Investigators say Oliver and his partner approached a suspicious vehicle at the Motel 6 with vests identifying themselves as sheriff’s deputies. They say Marquez opened fire through the car window, hitting Oliver in the forehead.

Either Marquez or Monroy was a guest at the Motel 6, though investigators could not confirm which one, or how long they had been staying there. They are both cooperating with detectives in the investigation.

DEPUTIES KILLED

The suspects’ fingerprints have been submitted to a federal database to confirm their identity, but there is no known local criminal connection for either.

Marquez was treated for an arm injury at time of his arrest, but it is unsure when he was injured.

Several dozen law enforcement vehicles, with lights silently flashing, escorted a hearse carrying Michael Davis’ flag-draped casket to a funeral home as bystanders and law enforcement officials hugged, saluted and wiped away tears.

It was also unclear what brought the heavily armed suspects from Utah to California, Bonner said. There were no indications they had been sought by authorities.

A search of Utah court records for Marquez shows a history of about 10 tickets and misdemeanor traffic offenses between 2003 and 2009. Those records list one speeding ticket for Monroy in 2009 and three small claims filings attempting to collect outstanding debts.

Krista Sorenson of Salt Lake City was confounded by the arrest of Marquez. He and his brother had mowed her lawn about four years ago.

“They were just super nice, decent hard-working, trying to figure out how to make a living,” she said.
