LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Southern California man is suspected of two random killings after a dying victim helped identify him.

An arrest warrant for Jorge (HOR’-haye) Rosales of Hemet was issued Monday. However, he’s been jailed since April 15 following a police chase. It’s unclear whether he has a lawyer.

Authorities believe Rosales shot a woman who was found dead April 11 in a car on an El Monte freeway shoulder.

Four days later, Rosales allegedly shot a man who was setting up a birthday for his daughter at an El Monte park. Authorities say the victim provided an attacker’s description before dying 11 days later.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Bill Cotter tells the San Gabriel Valley Tribune (https://bit.ly/2r4XKJJ ) that Rosales didn’t know the victims and the shootings appeared to be random.
