A 21-year-old man arrested on Saturday in connection with the fatal shooter of a good Samaritan who stopped helping a supervised midfielder, 15, San Diego police said on Sunday.
Brandon Acuna was arrested suspected of first-degree murder and burglary, San Diego Police Lt Anthony Dupree said. He refused to offer further details, except to say that others may have been involved in the shot.
Curtis Adams, 21, an active member of the Navy, drove with her girlfriend south of the highway when they discovered a man standing next to a white vehicle on the shoulder near the Northwest Interstate 5 on the ramp in Logan Heights around 2:20, said Dupree.

The shooter returned to his vehicle and fled south.
Soon after, California Highway Patrol issued a warning that a similar vehicle was stopped on Northwest Interstate 5 near 32nd Street. You also saw that you left the vehicle.
Officers found the man on Newton Street, later identified as Acuna, and he was detained, police said.
Investigators also believe that Acuna was involved in an attempt car crash on the border street in the community of Mt. Hope about 1
0 minutes before the deadly shot, the police said.
Detectives work to determine if another person was involved in the attempt burglary.
