On Feb. 4 at approximately 2:30 a.m., police officers found Michael Harmon, 22, dead in a car in the roadway on the 1800 block of Stevens Avenue. Police spokesman Officer Ron Reier said Harmon, a Whittier resident, had been shot in the head.
Reier said by the middle of the afternoon on the day of the discovery, police had arrested Ta-Raj Benness, 24, of Stevens Square. "It was very quick work. It was a great job on our part," Reier said.
A witness said the two men, who knew each other, argued before the shooting.
