A man was booked into Clark County Detention Center on Thursday after being arrested in California on a warrant tied to a North Las Vegas slaying in 2012.

The Clark County District Attorney's Office said Jessie Arredondo, 33, was wanted for a homicide that happened Aug. 15, 2012.

According to North Las Vegas, 27-year-old Daniel Chavez Garcia was shot outside of the El Paso Market near Pecos Road and Owens Avenue about 12:30 a.m. that morning.

In documents released on Friday, three witnesses told police three Hispanic men arrived at the market in a grey Chrysler 300 vehicle. One of the men confronted Garcia and asked him, "Where you from?" according to the document.

When Garcia answered, several shots were fired at the victim and the men ran off, police said.

Gang task force officers with Las Vegas Metro police were able to identify the man believed to be the shooter as Arredondo through security video footage, NLVPD said.

Though Arredondo was identified by gang officers, only one of the witnesses was able to identify the suspect through a photo line-up.

The district attorney's office said Arredondo was arrested in San Diego and subsequent waived an extradition hearing.

He was booked into CCDC on a count of murder with a deadly weapon.
