Lopez was booked at Norwalk Sheriff's Station for murder.
Sheriff's K-9 handlers and deputies on scene were able to track down Lopez in the 9000 block of Painter Avenue, Whittier. A handgun was also recovered and is believed to be the murder weapon, however ballistics testing must be done to confirm this belief.
The shooting appears to be gang related.
Suspect Lopez is currently homeless, but has ties to the Whittier area.
