University of California, San Francisco police have arrested the suspect in the slaying of the president of a Hells Angels chapter at a Nevada casino.

Fifty-three-year-old Ernesto Manuel Gonzalez was taken into custody after he was spotted by an officer just a block from campus police headquarters. Gonzalez was apparently in a parked 2011 Chevrolet
Malibu.

He is being held pending the arrival of police from Sparks, Nev., where he is accused of killing Jeffrey "Jethro" Pettigrew inside a casino on Sept. 23.

Authorities say Gonzalez is an alleged member of the Vagos gang
and shot the 51-year-old Pettigrew four times in the back.

Pettigrew was the president of the San Jose chapter of the Hells
Angels.
