EL CAJON (CNS) - The El Cajon man shot to death in front of his home early Saturday was publicly identified Sunday by the Medical Examiner's office, hours his acquaintance was arrested for the murder.
Brandon Deguzman, 21, was gunned down in front of his house in the 500 block of Danny Street in the unincorporated residential neighborhood east of Gillespie Field, according to the Medical Examiner's office.
Saturday's investigation determined that Richard James Gunner, 23, a parolee at large, was a person of interest, according to sheriff's homicide Lt. Dan Brislin.
The Fugitive Task Force, Sheriff's Special Enforcement Detail, Sheriff's ASTREA helicopter, and patrol deputies spent the day tracking down Gunner.
At about 9:45 p.m. Saturday, the Fugitive Task Force located and arrested Gunner for parole violation. Sheriff's homicide detectives continued the investigation into the evening and developed sufficient evidence to arrest Gunner for suspicion of murder, Brislin said.
Gunner allegedly shot Deguzman during an altercation outside the home, Brislin said. Gunner was an acquaintance of the Deguzman and was in his company along with several other people earlier that morning and Friday night.
Gunner was booked into the San Diego Central Jail for suspicion of murder and held without bail felony for the parole violation.
Deputies asked anyone with information about this incident to call the Sheriff's Homicide Detail at (858) 974-2321, or after hours at (858) 565-
