A second man has been arrested, accused of murder in the shooting death of a man in the Colina Del Sol neighborhood just days before Christmas.

A second man was wounded in the shooting.

On Thursday, San Diego police arrested Kaelon Daniels, 19, in Lakeside and booked him into the county jail on charges of first degree murder and attempted murder in the first degree. 

Daniels is slated to appear in court Monday for an arraignment. 

He is the second suspect to be arrested in the case. On jan. 30, Mason Williams, 20, was booked into jail on suspicion of first-degree murder and attempted murder in the first degree. 

A fight broke out between two groups of men before the shooting started, SDPD Lt. Anthony Dupree said at the time of the shooting.

The area is home to a small shopping center that also includes a pho restaurant.
