Jonathan Lopez, 18, of La Puente is accused of murdering Emilio Borges of Hacienda Heights in front of a Feb. 27 birthday party

young gang member is awaiting trial on suspicion of shooting a 24-year-old man to death outside an East Valinda house party earlier this year, investigators announced last week.

Jonathan Lopez, 18, of La Puente is accused of murdering Emilio Borges of Hacienda Heights in front of a Feb. 27 birthday party in the 17000 block of Boulay Street, authorities said.

The attack took place as Borges, along with two passengers, were driving away from the party, Sgt. Brian Schoonmaker of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Homicide Bureau said.

"(Borges) was starting to drive away when the shooter walked up on him and shot him through an unopened window," he said.

A man who was a passenger in Borges' car suffered a grazing wound, while a woman in the car was unhurt, Detective Mike Valento said.

Due to an ongoing investigation, Valento declined to say exactly how detectives identified Lopez as the suspected triggerman in the fatal shooting before arresting him Sept. 30.

"Right now, let's just say the investigation led in his direction," he said.

Investigators said because the shooting occurred outside a party, there were several witnesses present.

"(Lopez) was under surveillance. He was arrested a short distance from his house once he walked away," Valento said.

Lopez was 17 when the fatal shooting took place, though he has since turned 18, Valento said. Because of the seriousness of the crime
