Police asked the public for help Tuesday in their search for a suspect in the fatal shooting of a man in Downey last month.

Jehosua Ruvalcaba, 27, was walking with the victim and two other men in the area of Paramount Boulevard and Stewart and Gray Road (map) at about 8:44 p.m. on Aug. 14 when the victim got into an argument with an unidentified person, according to a bulletin issued by the Downey Police Department.

During the argument, Ruvalcaba allegedly pulled out a handgun and fatally shot the victim before fleeing the scene.

The gun was not recovered at the scene and Ruvalcaba was considered to be armed and dangerous, according to the Police Department.
