Fresno Police say homicide detectives had been actively looking for Dodson.
They made the arrest this morning after he was spotted getting into a car.
The arrest took place just before 10AM in the area of Polk and Fairmount. Its been an intense investigation since the murder took place last Thursday night.
Police say two men 21-year-old Christopher Roberts and 35-year-old Dwayne Dodson robbed the Super 1 Convenience store and shot and killed a store clerk. Roberts was arrested the next day. But Dodson had been on the run until now.
"An innocent victim, a clerk got shot and killed over this and another clerk got beaten pretty good, and so it was very important for us to capture him and the non stop work that's happened here since last week," Lt. Mark Salazar said.
The victim, Kasmir Manes had been a store clerk for more than 20 years. He leaves behind a wife and two children.
Police say Dodson is a known gang member and a discharged parolee.
