A disturbance in a Northern California library in October may have led to this week’s shooting death of a 41-year-old library supervisor as she sat in her car outside the building, Tuesday evening, police say.

Amber Clark was shot multiple times in the face and head outside of the North Natomas Public Library, FOX 40 Sacramento reported.

A man identified as Ronald Seay, 56, who was arrested early Wednesday, is suspected in the woman’s death, the report said.

Clark was sitting in her car around 6 a.m., Tuesday when a suspect approached and shot her with a gun, according to the police, the Sacramento Bee reported.

Authorities said Seay had caused a disturbance Oct. 13 in the library, where Clark worked as the branch supervisor. They came in contact with Seay during the incident, police said, who added that the responding officers issued a non-infringement to Seay, FOX 40 reported.

Sacramento Police spokesman Sgt. Vance Chandler said investigators believe Clark was targeted and his investigation into the motive for the shooting, the Bee reported.

Chandler said Seay has lived, a few miles from the North Natomas Public Library for a number of months and previously lived outside of the state.

Seay was arrested after a short and slow-speed car chase at 5:30 a.m. Wednesday in Natomas, about 9 kilometers northwest of Sacramento, after a short chase.

The suspect was held on $ 1 million bail and will appear in court Friday, FOX 40 reported.

Clark’s husband, Kelly Clark, said in a statement to the that his wife “pursued professions that served to benefit young people and the improvement of the society.”

“They unselfishly she gave to her community,” he said.

In a statement on Facebook, the Sacramento Public Library Clark said, “is a champion for accessibility and inclusion, teaching all of us that we are all humans and not defined by our disabilities or differences.”
