Ruiz Gutierrez, who was carrying a gun, got out of the car to intervene and the suspects allegedly shot him to death and fled.
Detectives made the arrests in the case earlier this week, the LAPD said. L.A. County prosecutors have charged Jayon Sanders, 21, Abraham Castillo, 20 and Tyree Singleton, 20, with the murder of Ruiz Gutierrez, police said.
