The suspect, 20-year-old Andrew Daniel Rodriguez, of Hayward, was taken into custody on Friday in Humboldt County with the assistance of Fortuna police, San Jose police said.
He was arrested on an outstanding murder warrant and booked into Humboldt County Jail, where he is awaiting extradition to Santa Clara County.

Police said at the time that they believed the shooting was gang-related. Hernandez’s death marked San Jose’s 41st homicide of 2013.
