Los Angeles police say a second suspect has been arrested in connection with an illegal street race that ended with a crash that killed two spectators.
Officer Liliana Preciado says 38-year-old Irael Valenzuela was taken into custody Tuesday on suspicion of murder.
The Los Angeles resident is being held on $2 million bail.
Preciado says the arrest came after detectives interviewed witnesses and received anonymous tips.
Police didn't immediately say what Valenzuela's role in the race was. Preciado did not know if Valenzuela had an attorney.
Prosecutors earlier charged 21-year-old Henry Gevorgyan with two counts of murder.
Detectives say Gevorgyan was driving a Ford Mustang that went out of control during the race Feb. 25 in the Chatsworth area.
Twenty-six-year-old Eric Siguenza and 50-year-old Wilson Thomas Wong died.
