Roseville Police and the California Highway Patrol, which is investigating the threats to the Capitol, named Pinney, 30, as the suspect making the threats.

The California Highway Patrol did not immediately comment on the arrest and has not detailed the substance of the threat against the State Capitol.

Police in Roseville and Citrus Heights responded late Wednesday to reports of someone shooting a gun from a vehicle while driving through the cities. Bullets struck two buildings in Citrus Heights and a hospital in Roseville, police said.

State senators and their staff members were notified about the threat involving the building in an email Thursday morning from Senate Secretary Erika Contreras.

“The California Highway Patrol (CHP) has notified the Senate of a threat they consider to be credible involving the Capitol,” Contreras wrote. “The CHP and security partners are present in higher numbers in the Capitol area and are alert of the situation.”

Pinney also entered an auto parts business at the beginning of his shooting spree, where he called 911 and told police they needed to investigate a murder.

Police say he then fired at Harris Industrial Gases and believe he was aiming for a large propane tank on the property.
