That vehicle took off. It was later found abandoned and was reported stolen – about an hour after the hit-and-run.
Jamari Moore, an Inderkum High School sophomore, died in the hit-and-run.
Tuesday, California Highway Patrol announced they had made an arrest in the case. Dexter Laron Glover Jr., 19, is suspected of striking Moore, then fleeing the scene.
