COMMERCE CITY, Colo. – A man who was found jumping on top of a vehicle in the street was arrested on suspicion of homicide early Tuesday morning, according to the Commerce City Police Department.

A follow-up investigation led detectives to identify Hernandez as the suspect. He was arrested without incident and faces first-degree murder charges.

Police said the victim’s identity will be released by the coroner’s office.
