RICHMOND, Calif. (AP) - Police say a suspected gang member wanted for a murder and other crimes in the San Francisco Bay Area has been arrested in Reno, Nevada.

The East Bay Times reported Saturday that Cardell Waters was being sought in connection with the killing of 18-year-old Otilio Martinez, who was shot more than 50 times in Richmond two years ago. Waters was arrested last week. It wasn't immediately known if he has an attorney.

The newspaper says the 22-year-old is alleged to be part of a North Richmond gang called the Swerve Team, which authorities have linked to several killings, nearly a dozen attempted murders, and a number of violent home invasion robberies.

Martinez was a college student who police say was not affiliated with gangs.
