A watch commander with Berkeley police received a call at about 1:30 p.m. Saturday from Burbank police who said 24-year-old North Hollywood resident Pablo Gomez Jr. was in custody.

Gomez is the primary suspect in the homicide and also a stabbing on the same day, according to police.

At about 11:42 a.m. Friday, police responded to a call about a stabbing in the 2600 block of Ridge Road in Berkeley.

Upon arrival, officers found a woman seriously wounded, as well as the person who called police on her behalf, police said.

Officers provided medical attention until the Berkeley Fire Department arrived and transported her to a hospital, where she is receiving treatment and was listed in stable condition Friday night.

During the investigation, officers were led to an address in the 2400 block of Ashby Avenue.

According to police, evidence at the scene clearly indicated a violent crime had occurred there.

Much later, the body of an unidentified person was discovered, police said.

Police have not released the name of the homicide victim.
