RICHMOND -- A second man wanted in connection with the killing of a 16-year-old high school football player turned himself in Wednesday, a police spokeswoman said.
Matthew John Capanis, 26, surrendered to a county probation unit in Martinez about 1 p.m. Wednesday, said Richmond Police Lt. Bisa French.
Ulises Grijalva, a Richmond native, was shot to death about 9:30 p.m. Sunday in the 200 block of West MacDonald Avenue in Ricmond, French said. Police on Sunday arrested Jacob Stephens, 29, of Antioch while he was trying to run away from the scene. He is in custody on a parole violation while the district attorney reviews the case for a possible murder charge.

The killing was Richmond's 13th homicide of the year.
Meanwhile, a neighbor, Millie Frederick, has set up a bank account to help the Grijalva family with funeral expenses. The account
