COOS BAY, OR (KPTV) -

Authorities arrested a man on murder warrants Tuesday night at a Coos Bay home.

The U.S. Marshals Oregon Fugitive Task Force (OFTF), Oregon State Police and the Coos Bay Police Department joined together to take 20-year-old Jonathan Walker into custody.

The OFTF received information from investigators in California that Walker was hiding out in Coos Bay possibly with friends, authorities said.

Walker barricaded himself inside the home as police tried to serve a search warrant, investigators said. He surrendered after approximately 30 minutes.

Walker was wanted in connection with two separate shooting incidents involving three victims.

Investigators told FOX 12, the most recent attack involved an incident last month in Vallejo, CA, where Walker is accused of shooting and killing a man in a parking lot outside of an apartment complex.

Walker was also wanted in connection with a shooting that happened in January. He allegedly shot two men in San Francisco. One of the victims died, police said.

Walker is currently on state parole in California for robbery.

Following his arrest, Walker was taken to the Coos County Jail where he was lodged on felony warrants for homicide and parole violation.
