An Ontario man was arrested on suspicion of murder after he tried to re-enter California at the San Diego border with Mexico, authorities said Saturday.
Alex Garcia, 39, was taken into custody on an arrest warrant May 24 in San Diego County for the shooting death of Nino Munoz, the Ontario Police Department said in a news release.
Garcia crossed the border into Mexico shortly after authorities allege he shot Munoz on May 12 in the 300 block of Carlton Street.
Munoz was 41 and also from Ontario.
Ontario police said they worked with the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force to arrest Garcia.
The suspect is being held on $1 million bail at the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga.
