Man Wanted for Questioning in Calaveras Homicide Arrested Last Night

A man wanted for questioning in a Calaveras County homicide case was arrested last night after leading officers on a chase from Lodi to Sacramento.  Late yesterday afternoon, Lodi Police spotted 31 year-old Gary McMahon riding a stolen motorcycle.  When they attempted to pull him over, the chase began.  Traveling at speeds of 80 miles an hour, McMahon eventually stopped at the westbound Highway 50 exit at 16th Street where he was taken into custody by the CHP.  McMahon has been a “person of interest” in the death of a 45 year-old man in West Point.  The man, still unidentified, and a 37 year-old woman were found bleeding and unconscious late Tuesday morning.  Investigators ask anyone with information on the case to call the CalaverasCounty sheriff’s Office at 754-6500, or the anonymous tip-line at 754-6030.
