One week after fleeing the scene of a homicide in Douglas County, a Riddle man has been apprehended in Redding, California.

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office was notified yesterday that the Shasta County Sheriff's Office -- with assistance from the United States Marshals Service -- took 19-year-old Gauge Douglas James Main into custody.

Gauge Main was located at a residence in Redding. Following the November 20th homicide in Riddle, he had stolen a 2017 Honda Civic sedan which was recovered in Redding late last week.

Main is suspected of killing 20-year-old Devonte Lovell Clark of Grants Pass and injuring another Grants Pass man. A nationwide felony warrant had been issued for his arrest for homicide and Sheriff John Hanlin had requested the assistance of the US Marshals Service's Fugitive Task Apprehension team in locating the suspect.

Main has been booked into the Shasta County Jail where he awaits extradition proceedings that will bring him back to Southern Oregon to stand trial for murder.
