Nearly a year after allegedly shooting two men, leaving one dead in the San Fernando Valley last year, Andrew Lee Thomas Jr. (pictured to the right) was caught on a Metrolink train in the Santa Clarita Valley last Friday afternoon during "a routine train fare compliance check" by LA County Sheriff's. One of the officers recognized Thomas, 21, from an LAPD wanted bulletin. Thomas was questioned and gave a fake name, but when officers pulled out a mobile finger print verification device, he was idenfitied and arrested. Last year on August 23rd, Kyree Rasheen McCray, 28, was shot and killed at Reseda Park during a youth football game. A second victim was wounded.
