A man was arrested on suspicion of killing a 19-year-old woman who was found dead from a gunshot wound in a Pasadena home, police said Monday afternoon.

Jonjon Crummie, 18, was taken into custody around 4 p.m. at the Los Angeles County Medical Center after his mother brokered a surrender deal with authorities, the Pasadena Police Department said.

Earlier Monday, police identified Crummie as a suspect in the woman's death. She was found in a home in the 1500 block of North Raymond Avenue. Her name was not released.
