SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 17-year-old boy was in custody Friday on suspicion of fatally shooting a man during a robbery near the site of a child's birthday party in Otay Mesa last month, police said. The teen, whose name was withheld, was arrested Thursday evening at San Diego police headquarters in downtown, according to San Diego police homicide Lt. Kevin Rooney.
He was expected to be booked into Juvenile Hall. It was not immediately clear what charges the juvenile faces. He is the second person arrested in connection with the May 19 slaying of 28-year-old Reynaldo Bonoan.
Andrew James Oliver, 22, was arrested on suspicion of murder and robbery within hours of the slaying, which occurred about 4:20 p.m. May 19 in the 3400 block of Alonquin Way. Police said that shortly before being shot, Bonoan left a child's birthday party to run an errand and was walking back, about to return to the celebration, when he was robbed and shot in the street. He died
at the scene.
Later the same night, Oliver was arrested in the 1100 block of Camino Regalado, about a block away from where a getaway vehicle was located, police said.
Oliver was arraigned on May 23 and pleaded not guilty to murder, robbery and being vicariously armed with a gun. He is being held at the South Bay Detention Facility in lieu of $1 million bail. If convicted, he faces 26 years to life in prison.
