LAKEWOOD, Wash. — Lakewood police detectives have arrested a man for the 2015 fatal stabbing in a parking lot.

Police were called to the area on Aug. 27, 2015 and found Danny Guerin unresponsive with obvious stab wounds.

Attempts to revive him failed and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Detectives had little to go on at the time, but recent information developed through the help of the public led detectives to a person of interest.

Officials said on Thursday that they were able to place David Ray Gallegos at the scene of the stabbing. He was arrested on Wednesday.

Gallegos was booked on a charge of murder in the second degree.
