Authorities say a 57-year-old man sought in Las Vegas after a shooting at a dominoes game that left two people dead and a third badly wounded has been arrested in California.

Records showed that Frederick Douglas Martin was arrested Tuesday near Victorville, California, and was being held Thursday in a San Bernardino County jail pending a court appearance for an extradition hearing.

The Clark County coroner's office has identified the men shot and killed late Sunday as 37-year-old Demond Billingsley and 20-year-old Calvin Lashawn Clark. Their deaths were ruled homicides.

Police haven't identified the third man wounded with a gunshot to the head.

Police say the victims and Martin knew each other, and that Martin went to his vehicle during an argument to retrieve a gun before opening fire.
