San Diego police announced on Monday that a second suspect has been arrested in connection with the shooting death of a 29-year-old man in the Chollas Creek area. Peter Santiago, aged 29, was apprehended at a residence on 50th Street near Orange Avenue last Thursday evening at around 9:45 p.m. He has been booked into jail on suspicion of murder and conspiracy related to the fatal shooting.

The victim, identified as Stephen Toney, was shot during an altercation with two other men near an encampment close to 54th Street and Chollas Parkway on July 22. Homicide Lt. Jud Campbell revealed that Toney was found lying in a ravine on the south side of Chollas Parkway after witnesses directed officers to his location. Despite being rushed to the hospital, Toney succumbed to his injuries.
