VALLEJO (CBS SF) — A 21-year-old Vallejo man wanted in the shooting death of a pregnant teen and her unborn child was arrested early Wednesday after a standoff with police in Vallejo, authorities said.

San Pablo police spokesman Sidney DeJesus said detectives got a lead Tuesday night as to the whereabouts of one of two men wanted in connection with the shooting death of the 18-year-old.

Officers surrounded a Vallejo apartment complex where Luis Javier Monje Morales Jr. was hiding and made contact with the suspect, who attempted to flee.

After a short pursuit, Morales was discovered on the roof and was taken into custody at 3 a.m. He was unarmed and arrested without a struggle.

San Pablo Police said a person of interest being sought, 21-year-old Luciano Rogelio Duarte, turned himself in to police Wednesday morning.

McCoy was taken to a hospital where she succumbed to her injuries, as did her unborn infant.

    Two more Hispanic punks shooting and killing.
    It’s pretty common these days in California.

    These criminal illegal aliens are exactly what Donald Trump was speaking about. And the fools and idiots out there have the audacity to call him a racist because he chooses to address this big problem in our country and the facts cannot be denied, even by ultra liberals like Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton is the open borders candidate and will make sure guys like these killers receive American citizenship. Reward them for heinous deeds. Additionally, she will increase the refugee inflow into the U.S. from the Middle East by 550%. Our country will be finished by the time she gets done with it, should she win.

    Dangerous criminals running loose and freely are in our communities murdering young pregnant girls, and thousands of other people. This story is unnerving. It is surprising that they hadn’t already taken off and on their way back to Mexico. A lot of these killers do just that. By the time the cops get to the scene the criminal alien is booking it down to the Border. I am very grateful that Donald Trump is running for POTUS and working very hard to win and make many positive, needed changes like ending especially illegal immigration and removing criminal aliens so that we have a safe country once again. Illegals take 11 American lives per day nationwide and we will not have to fear them taking another American life. Illegal aliens have a wildness about them and a wild look in their eyes.
