Deputies have arrested a suspect in connection with the fatal stabbing of a teenage boy in Spring Valley three years ago.
Officials held Christian Lopez, 27, in the slaying of Jeffrey Quirino, 17, according to sheriff’s officials,. They did not disclose the information that led investigators to identify him as a suspect in the case.
On May 23, 2016, deputies responded to a report of a fight in the 8900 block of Delrose Avenue.
A nearby passing motorist discovered the teen wounded by the intersection of Elkelton Boulevard and Jamacha Road. Quirino died at the hospital, Lt. Chad Boudreau said.
Lopez awaits arraignment, scheduled for Wednesday afternoon, at San Diego Central Jail.
