SAN DIEGO (CNS) – A man was arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of a 26-year-old man earlier this month in Spring Valley, authorities said Thursday.

22-year-old Pedro Arturo Rodriguez Jr. was arrested in the San Diego Central Jail on a single charge of murder, Lieutenant Thomas Seiver said in a press release.

The San Diego Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested Rodriguez on Tuesday as he left his residence in the 5200 block of Quince Street in San Diego, Seiver said.
