A 21-year-old Palm Desert man was arrested Tuesday in the fatal shooting of a 20-year-old man in Indio, a police spokesman said.

Shawn Anthony Wynn was arrested about 3:35 p.m. in the death of Indio resident Juan Carlos Hernandez, who was found shot to death June 16 in an off- white Cadillac parked near Lancer Gate and Merlin Drive, Indio police Sgt. Dan Marshall said.

Detectives believe there may be one or more suspects still at large, he said. A person of interest was detained, and search warrants were served in the case last week.

Wynn will be booked into a county jail on suspicion of murder tonight, he said.

Anyone with more information about the killing was asked to call police at (760) 391-4057 or Coachella Valley Crime Stoppers at (760) 341-7867.
