An arrest has been made in connection with the murder of a Lompoc man earlier this year.
Maurilio De La Cruz, 37, was shot and killed Feb. 19 shortly before 1 a.m. on the 1000 block of North H Street.
Lompoc police say their investigation led them to identify an 18-year-old as the suspect.
An arrest warrant was issued for Jorge Tafoya, Jr., and police say he was taken into custody Wednesday at a home on the 1300 block of West Pine Avenue “after negotiating a peaceful surrender.”
The 18-year-old was booked into the Lompoc jail on suspicion of murder.
Police have not released information on a possible motive for the shooting.
