A 23-year-old suspected of killing his cousin in Oakland earlier this month was shot and killed after refusing to heed the orders of a SWAT team summoned to arrest him in Santa Rosa, authorities said Saturday.

Investigators had sought Haki Kuasi Gaidi Thurston of Oakland in the Feb. 12 slaying of Hodari Benson. Oakland police had tracked Thurston to a Santa Rosa motel, and called local police to assist with the arrest Friday night, Sonoma County officials said.
