2 Killed on Richmond-San Rafael Bridge, Suspect Arrested

According to TV news reports, a female toll collector on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge and a man in a parking lot nearby were shot and killed this evening in what Richmond police described as a domestic dispute.

The shooting happened around 6 p.m. at the toll plaza, The San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The toll collector has been identified as Deborah Ross, 51, who police say was sharing a home with Burris in Richmond. The second victim has been identified as Ersie Everett, 58, of San Leandro. He was a driver for Golden Gate Transit, San Jose Mercury News reports.

Meanwhile, a man suspected of killing was arrested after an overnight manhunt, police said Wednesday.

California Highway Patrol officers arrested Nathaniel Burris, 46, around 3:15 a.m. Wednesday in Placer County, about 120 miles northeast of the shooting at the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge toll plaza. Authorities said Burris was sleeping in an airport shuttle van, but drove off after CHP officers approached and surrendered after a short chase.

Burris was booked into Placer County Jail on two counts of murder.

Witnesses said a man used the butt of a shotgun to shatter the window of the No. 3 toll booth, then fired at least three times before fleeing in the van, The Associated Press reports.
