Four people were arrested in connection with the killing of a 27-year-old off-duty LAPD officer Fernando Arroyos who was shot while house-hunting in South L.A. with his girlfriend, authorities said.

LA County Sheriff’s investigators said the four suspects were arrested on Wednesday— two days after LAPD Officer Fernando Arroyos was gunned down in South LA as he and his girlfriend were house hunting.

Sheriff’s officials didn’t release the names of the suspects or list the charges against them.

Arroyos, 27, and his girlfriend were crossing a street at about 9:15 p.m. on Monday in the Florence-Firestone neighborhood when a truck with three men approached the couple, officials said.

Arroyos was shot and killed late Monday during a robbery and exchange of gunfire in a South Los Angeles neighborhood. 

Deputies responded about 9:15 p.m. Monday to the 8700 block of Beach Street where they found the officer lying unresponsive in the alley with at least one gunshot wound.

According to authorities, a black pickup approached Arroyos and his girlfriend, and three people got out of the truck.

An argument ensued and Arroyos was shot, detectives said. Arroyos exchanged gunfire with at least one of the robbers, LAPD Chief Michel Moore said.

It was not immediately clear whether the attackers knew Arroyos was a law enforcement officer.

Deputies took Arroyos to a hospital where he died.

“This is an unfathomable loss for Fernando’s family, friends, coworkers and Academy classmates,” league officials said in a statement. “Now is the time to pray for Fernando’s family and his girlfriend and to keep the officers who worked daily alongside Fernando in our thoughts.”
