A suspect wanted in the daylight killing of a San Jose man behind a downtown taqueria in August was arrested in Las Vegas, authorities said.

Shaun Moore, 23, was arrested Friday by the U.S. Marshals Service on a San Jose police warrant in the fatal shooting of 22-year-old Ramon Garcia, which occurred Aug. 24 in the parking lot behind Tico's Tacos restaurant near North Fourth and East Julian streets.

Moore was booked into jail in Clark County, Nev. and is expected to be extradited to San Jose, but when that will happen was not immediately clear Monday.

The case gained local notoriety after surveillance video from a home across the street from the restaurant captured the deadly clash between Garcia, a father of five, and an assailant who chased him to the parking lot and appeared to shoot Garcia. A muzzle flash was clearly visible in the footage.

Police and relatives say Garcia was involved in an argument at nearby St. James Park before he was shot but did not comment further on the circumstances that led to the shooting. Two weeks later, an investigation led police to identify Moore as a suspect and eventually discover that he might have fled to Las Vegas.

The killing marked the city's 33rd killing of the year. A total of 39 homicides have been recorded in San Jose in 2013, including one where a victim was found dead on San Jose State University property, which San Jose police do not count toward their tally.
