California Highway Patrol officers pulled over the suspect, whose name was not immediately available, on southbound Interstate 805 at I-8 about 3:15 p.m. at the request of an undercover Los Angeles County sheriff’s detective, CHP public-affairs Officer Robert Catano said.

They arrested the driver, along with a passenger, without incident, he said.

The suspect was heading for Mexico, according to CBS News 8. The freeway was shutdown for about 30 minutes.

All lane have since been re-opened.

The suspect is accused of shooting a 29-year-old man, who later died, after a verbal dispute in Pacoima early Friday.

The shooting occurred on the 13000 block of Pearce Street around 1 a.m., Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. Derek Brown said.

Brown said the 28-year-old suspect fled the scene after the shooting and has been identified.

The victim was pronounced dead at a hospital, Brown said.
