Kern county sheriff's deputies have arrested a man who is suspected of shooting and killing 31-year-old David Ray Steelman.

Steelman was found with a gunshot wound on Crystal Street just north of Olive Avenue last week. Steelman was still alive when deputies found him, but lifesaving efforts proved fruitless.

Following an investigation, deputies issued an arrest warrant for 37-year-old Bobby Sherrell.

Friday, deputies found Sherrell in Bakersfield and arrested him without incident.
