We're getting our first look at the suspect - who was arrested in connection with a deadly hit and run accident.
23-year-old Jesse Fuentes of Los Banos was arrested this morning.
He's accused of hitting 18-year old Fernando Buenrestro Jr., Saturday night.
CBS 47's Lemor Abrams has the emotional reaction from the victim's family and friends.
Fernando Buenrostro held his two young boys as he prepared to say a rosary to remember his oldest son 18-year old Fernando Buenrostro Jr.
“He really knows he's is in heaven,” said Dad.
Buenrostro Jr. had just signed up to the Army National Guard.
His friends say he was ready to risk his life for his country.
“I told him if he wanted to go... go but I didn't want him to go,” said a friend.
But he died riding his motor scooter after a leaving a friend house in a quite Los Banos neighborhood Saturday night.
A truck slammed into him and left the scene.
“Just seeing people trying to help was very loving,” said Patricia Alcarat at the crash scene.
People in this tight knit town are so struck by the soldiers death, that they posted flyers about the hit and run drivers car.
And police organized a special task force to solve the case.
Wednesday, officers spotted the truck that slammed into Fernando Buenrostro Jr.
The driver told officers his 23-year old son was behind the wheel at the time of the crash.
Police arrested Jesse Ryan Fuentes, also from Los Banos.
Dad wishes the drive had stopped.
“It would have been a lot easier if he had taken responsibility and turned himself in,” he said.
A funeral is planned for Sunday, at the Whitehurst Chapel in Los Banos.
