An alleged Compton gang member was arrested on suspicion of shooting and killing a 43-year-old man who had come out of his East Los Angeles home to inspect damage to a fence hit by a vehicle, authorities said Monday.

Marco Blanco came out of his home in the 900 block of North Rowan Avenue about 8:35 p.m. on March 10 and was shot in the upper torso and declared dead at the scene, said sheriff’s Lt. Dave Dolson.

Jonathan Francisco Valle, 22, fled on foot, then turned himself in and was booked at the sheriff’s East Los Angeles Station. He was held on $1 million bail. A weapon was recovered.
