OCEANSIDE–A 20-year-old suspected Oceanside gang member was arrested and charged with the murder of a man on November 15, Oceanside police says.
Torrey Deangelis was taken into custody by Oceanside police for the homicide of 18-year-old Ozzy Maturano. The victim’s body was found last Friday on a Oceanside bike path near Neptune Way.
Investigators say they received information last weekend of two groups of individuals who were involved in a verbal confrontation. They believed the confrontation was motivated by gang rivalry and escalated into a physical fight. Based on corroborating information and evidence obtained it is believed Deangelis inflicted the fatal gunshot wound to the victim.
Deangelis was booked on charges of homicide and gang allegation.
Because of the on-going investigation, investigators will not release information on particular suspected gang(s) involved.
