Married couple arrested in Sacramento bar shooting


SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Police have arrested a married couple they say were connected to a New Year's Eve shooting in a Sacramento bar that killed two people and left three others wounded.

Sacramento police say 36-year-old Amber Scholz instigated the altercation and her husband, 34-year-old Charles Fowler-Scholz, was involved in a fight before the shooting at the Sports Corner Cafe in Old Sacramento area of the city about 9:40 p.m. Monday.

Police arrested the couple Friday.

The suspected gunman in the shooting - 22-year-old Carlito Montoya - has also been arrested. Police say Montoya was wounded by an armed security guard at the bar. Montoya was in custody at a hospital where he was being treated for his wounds.

The security guard and a 30-year-old woman in the bar were also wounded.

Police said their injuries were not considered to be life threatening.
