i need some help. i've killed several of these bugs in my apartment so far, but have no idea what they are.

the bug is black, with a hard-ish shell (at least it crunches when i kill it). it is narrow and long, with at least 2 segments. it has a long tail segment, which ends in what almost looks like a stinger. it is forked, and the bug can curl it like a scorpion. it has no pinchers, and its legs are short.

i live in northern california, near sacramento. anyone have any ideas what it could be?
