19 Year Old Arrested For The Alleged Murder of 17 Year Old

Eudiel Lopez, a 19-year-old homeless man, has been arrested in the shooting death of Michael Soto, 17, outside a Whittier continuation school. Soto was taken to the hospital and was later pronounced dead.

Lopez was arrested about 5:45 p.m. in Whittier, 6 hours after the shooting, down the street from where it took place, on suspicion of killing Soto.

Deputies also found a handgun that they believe might be the murder weapon.

Los Angeles County court records show that Lopez was arrested earlier this year for possession of methamphetamines. He got out of jail March 18, eight days before the shooting.
