Posted: Updated:
SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – A man wanted for a murder in Los Angeles was arrested Friday on a San Diego freeway.

California Highway Patrol officers pulled over the suspect, whose name was not immediately available, on southbound Interstate 805 near Adams Avenue about 3:15 p.m. at the request of an undercover Los Angeles County sheriff's detective, CHP public-affairs Officer Robert Catano said. The incident shut down the southbound lanes during rush hour traffic.

They arrested the suspect, who was a passenger in the vehicle, without incident, he said. The driver was also taken into custody.

According to officials, the man was wanted in the death of a neighbor in Pacoima Friday morning, and was possibly attempting to flee to Mexico.

He was expected to be transported back to Los Angeles to face charges.
