Oceanside police have arrested a suspect in connection with the death of an 18-year-old man whose body was discovered lying face-down on a bike path Friday evening.

Suspect Torrey Deangelis, 20, is accused of fatally shooting Ozzy Maturano on Nov. 15 in the 300-block of Neptune Way near some railroad tracks and a bike path.

Maturano’s body was discovered by passersby around 6:40 p.m. Friday.

Police said the victim sustained obvious trauma from a single gunshot wound and died at the scene, despite life-saving efforts.

On Saturday, Sgt. Rick Favela said investigators believed Maturano's death was neither an accident nor a suicide. A homicide investigation was launched over the weekend.

Investigators said new details revealed two groups of individuals were involved in a verbal confrontation believed to have been motivated by gang rivalry.

The confrontation escalated into a physical fight and police said Deangelis allegedly fired a fatal gunshot at Maturano.

Deangelis was booked into San Diego Central Jail on several charges, including first-degree murder and participation in a gang.

He’s scheduled to appear in court Tuesday and again on Nov. 27.

Police said the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information on this case should contact the Oceanside Police Department’s Crimes of Violence Unit at (760) 435-4054.
