An El Cajon man was arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder after police said he attacked his housemate with a frying pan.
Officers were called to a transitional housing residence in the 1200 block of Naranca Avenue, where they found a man in a bedroom bleeding from injuries to his head and face, said Lt. Royal Bates with the El Cajon Police Department. The victim, who has not been identified, later died at a hospital.
Brad Payton, 24, was arrested at the living facility and booked at San Diego Central Jail on Thursday. He’s not eligible for release, according to San Diego County jail records.
