Three suspects were arrested on Wednesday on homicide charges in the fatal shooting of an erotic massage and meditation teacher as he was walking his dog on a San Francisco Bay Area hiking trail this week, according to officials and local media reports.

Marin County Sheriff's Office spokesman Lieutenant Doug Pittman told reporters the three people were arrested near Portland, Oregon, in the killing of 67-year-old Steve Carter on Monday evening in Fairfax.

The three were captured on a surveillance camera at a gas station filling up Carter's car which had been stolen from the scene, Pittman said. They face charges of homicide, burglary and other felonies, he said.

The suspects were not named and further details on the shooting, including possible motives or whether they knew the victim, were not immediately provided.
