UPDATE 6:50 p.m., Monday, April 27, 2020 - Chico Police announced on Monday they have arrested the suspect in the murder of 21-year-old Joshua Elysee.

Officials say they spoke with witnesses and obtained search warrants, determining 26-year-old Johnny Osby was the suspect.

On April 27, almost two weeks after the deadly shooting, officials say they learned Osby was at an apartment on the 900 block of West East Avenue.

Due to a firearm being used in the homicide, officials say the city's SWAT team was called out to get Osby into custody.

After a short negotiation, Osby surrendered and officers took him into custody.

Osby was booked on a count of murder, as well as an outstanding warrant for his arrest on an unrelated case.

Additional charges are pending, according to police.
