A juvenile suspect was arrested Thursday Nov. 2 for the Oct. 28 murder of Cal State Fullerton student Alex Zepeda in Wilmington, a Los Angeles neighborhood, according to a Los Angeles Police Department news release.

Zepeda, 19, was walking outside with friends around 1:45 a.m. after a Halloween party when he was approached by the suspect and fatally shot in the chest. He died at the scene.

The LA Times reported that members from the rival gangs Westside and Eastside Wilmas were at the party, but the LAPD could not confirm when contacted by the Daily Titan.

KTLA reported that the suspect was 14 years old. LAPD could not confirm this either.

The identity of the suspect has not been released due to his age.
