San Bernardino County man arrested on suspicion of murder after fatal road-rage shooting

A 28-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with a fatal shooting during a conflict between two drivers in San Bernardino County, authorities said.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department said Abel Nunez-Alejandre, a resident of Eastvale in northwestern Riverside County, was arrested a day after the shooting.

On Thursday afternoon, deputies found Roger Albarran, 52, of Fontana with a gunshot wound in his Honda Civic in the 14100 block of Arrow Route in Fontana. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Homicide detectives said Albarran was driving north on Etiwanda Avenue when he had a "road rage incident" with the driver of a GMC Yukon, who they said was Nunez-Alejandre. Officials said Nunez-Alejandre fired a handgun at Albarran, who lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a parked car.

Nunez-Alejandre was booked into the West Valley Detention Center, where he was held without bail, the Sheriff's Department said.
