SACRAMENTO, CA (KOVR/CNN) - Authorities say a Castro Valley resident is the man suspected of shooting and killing Sacramento County deputy Robert French.

Suspect Thomas Daniel Littlecloud, 32, is being treated at the hospital for life-threatening wounds after Wednesday's shootout. One of the women detained in the pursuit leading up to the shooting has also been identified. 

Priscilla Prendez, 23, is now facing charges of vehicle theft and felony evasion, and appeared in court on Friday.  The other woman detained has since been questioned and released.

Littlecloud has accumulated a lengthy list of crimes, including evading a police officer, assault with a semi-automatic weapon, illegal possession of a gun, and twice violating parole, according to KCBS.
