Police arrested a man suspected of shooting and killing another person while riding a bicycle in the east Las Vegas Valley earlier this month.

Las Vegas Metro police said Andres Garcia-Leal, 19, was taken into custody on April 11 at a border crossing in Calexico, CA. He was held on an outstanding warrant.

Police identified Garcia-Leal as the suspect in an April 4 homicide on East Twain Avenue, near Palos Verdes Street. Police said the victim was shot twice in the chest by a person on a bike.

Citing an investigation, police said the victim and the gunman were in an altercation in the same area about 12 hours before the shooting.

The Clark County Coroner's Office identified the victim as Jordan Taitano, 42.

Garcia-Leal was booked into Clark County Detention Center on a count of open murder and narcotics possession.
