The victim, identified as Jacob McKanry, was shot on May 4 near Orange Avenue and 10th Street in Coronado while meeting up with two men to complete an online jewelry sale.

During the meet up, McKanry was robbed and shot in the back. One more suspect is still being sought for the shooting.

The two men suspected in the incident were both described as Hispanic and in their 20's. One of the men has a heavy build, curly dark hair and was last seen wearing a blue sweatshirt and baggy pants. A description of the other man is unclear, as he was reportedly seen by witnesses removing his clothing. It wasn't immediately clear which suspect was arrested.
