SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - Police in Mexico have arrested a U.S. citizen accused in a triple shooting that left one person dead in Southern California.

The FBI said Wednesday that 32-year-old Alfonso Garcia Jr. was captured Sunday by the Mexican Federal Police in Baja.

According to a criminal complaint filed in San Bernardino County, Garcia was charged with three counts of attempted murder following the June 21 shooting.

Injured in the shooting were Richard Loera, Luis Loera Martinez and Arnulfo Loera. Martinez eventually died of his injuries.

The FBI determined Garcia had fled to Mexico and issued a federal warrant for his arrest on Sept. 22.

The Los Angeles Times reports (https://lat.ms/1skfbDH) Garcia pleaded not guilty to all charges Tuesday and is being held in lieu of a $2 million bond.
