VALLEJO (KRON) — Vallejo police have arrested a teenage suspect in a fatal shooting earlier this month.

Eighteen-year-old Jacob Rodriguez, of Vallejo, is in the Solano County Jail on suspicion of murder, attempted murder, and assault with a deadly weapon.

Police believe he was involved in a car chase and shooting that killed 18-year old Eric Reyes of Vallejo, and wounded a woman riding in the car with Reyes.

Reyes was driving a white Toyota Camry, Capt. John Whitney said.

The shooting happened Feb. 6 at around 11:25 a.m. near Heartwood Avenue and Springs Road.

Witnesses said the Toyota was being chased by another vehicle a few minutes before the shooting, Whitney said.

The case is still under investigation.
