The suspect, Rasenoch Allen, 27,  was apprehended in Virginia with the help of U.S. Marshals.

On April 13, around 7:30 p.m. Alma Soraya Vasquez, 30, her son, 6-year-old Angel Garcia, and his uncle were crossing the street at the intersection of 26th and Fruitvale when they were hit by a black Mercedes.
