Police in San Diego have arrested a suspect accused of shooting dead a US Navy sailor who stopped on a freeway early Saturday morning to help a motorist who appeared to be stranded.
California Highway Patrol officers arrested 21-year-old Brandon Acuna on Saturday morning in connection to the killing of Curtis Adams earlier that day.
Adams, 21, an active duty member of the Navy station in San Diego was driving with his girlfriend south on Interstate 15 at around 2.20am when they spotted a man next to a vehicle stopped on the shoulder.
San Diego police Lt. Anthony Dupree said the couple pulled over to assist, and Adams was immediately shot as he exited his car, reported San Diego Union-Tribune.
He later died at UC San Diego Medical Center in Hillcrest from a wound to his upper body.
