Carlos Carrillo-Martinez, 19, turned himself in to police Wednesday night, officials said. He was booked for murder and his bail set at $2 million. At this time, police believe Carrillo-Martinez and the victim, Jalil Sosa Illera, 27, did not know each other. The fatal stabbing also does not appear gang-related, according to authorities.
It happened around 3:45 p.m. Tuesday. Los Angeles Police Department officers were called out to the 2400 block of South Flower Street, near the LATTC/Ortho Institute Metro station, after reports of a stabbing. When they got there, they found Ilera suffering from stab wounds.
Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics brought Illera to the hospital where he later died.
According to police, Illera and another person were "involved in an altercation" on an MTA train just before he was stabbed. On Wednesday, police shared photos and video of the suspect on the train platform.
Anyone with information about the attack was asked to call detectives at 213-996-4144.
