Police have arrested two suspects in a hit-and-run homicide that followed a fight at a South San Jose flea market earlier this month, police said today. Andrew Reynoso, 24, of San Jose was arrested Saturday on suspicion of the Feb. 16 murder of Eric Vallejo, 23, also of San Jose, police said. Police also arrested Davinna Mariscal, 21, of San Jose on Feb. 18 on suspicion of being an accessory to the murder after the fact.
Police said that Vallejo was killed following a dispute that started at the Capitol Flea Market at 3630 Hillcap Ave. and moved into city streets. Two men were hit by a car and one was stabbed. Vallejo was found lying on the ground and bleeding from being hit by a car shortly after 3 p.m. at Snell Avenue and Capitol Expressway, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
He had been part of two groups of people that had gotten into a confrontation at the flea market, police said. When the groups confronted each other again on city streets, Vallejo was hit by a car and both groups fled the scene, police said. Two men later turned up at San Jose Medical Center who had also been injured in the fight, one had been stabbed and the other appeared to have been hit by a car. Neither man’s injuries were life-threatening. Investigators are still looking for a charcoal colored 2008 E-550 Mercedes Benz with license plate #7DMZ599 with rear-end damage, police said.
