Deputy shot in fast-food restaurant dies

A Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy who was shot in the head while off duty in a fast-food restaurant has died.

Sheriff Alex Villanueva says 50-year-old Joseph Solano died yesterday afternoon, two days after a gunman shot him at a Jack in the Box in suburban Alhambra.

Authorities say Solano wasn't in uniform at the time he was shot and the gunman apparently didn't know him.

A 30-year-old Utah man, Rhett Nelson, has been arrested.

Authorities also call him a suspect in the random killing of another man in Los Angeles an hour before the shooting. And they say Nelson's also suspected of being a gunman who robbed five convenience stores in San Diego County a few days ago.
