SANTA ANA (CNS) – A Temecula man was charged Tuesday with the killing of a man in Huntington Beach earlier this month.
Tyrell Avion Lee, 33, was charged with murder with a special circumstances allegation of lying in wait.
Lee is accused of killing 31-year-old Jimmy Sengpaseauth of Los Angeles on Dec. 5, according to police. Lee was arrested Saturday in Moreno Valley.
Police were called at about 8 p.m. the night of the killing to a report of shots fired in the 5200 block of Tasman Drive. When officers arrived they found the victim suffering from a gunshot wound and he was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
Lee did not enter a plea Tuesday at his arraignment, which was rescheduled for Jan. 20 in the Central Justice Center in Santa Ana.
