GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A man wanted for shooting and killing a woman in Grand Rapids last week has been arrested, police say.

Luis Fabian Bernal-Sosa, 27, was arrested Friday in the Chicagoland area by the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force and is lodged in an Illinois jail, the Grand Rapids Police Department said.

Bernal-Sosa faces first-degree murder and weapons charges in the May 31 death of Leah Gomez. Police say he shot her in her car in the parking lot of Loose Leaf Lofts on Commerce Avenue in downtown Grand Rapids.

On Friday, News 8 spoke to two of Leah Gomez’s brothers about the arrest. They said they learned of the news during Gomez’s funeral services.

“As soon as my mom told everybody, everybody kind of rejoiced, everybody yelled and screamed like hallelujah, thank you lord,” said Jonathon Reil, Leah Gomez’s brother.

Her brother Alexander Reil said recent days have been tough as the family continues to mourn the loss of Gomez, and the arrest brought closure that was needed.

“It’s really just been a huge blur, lots of tears, and lots of memories,” Alexander Reil said. “I feel like she’s at rest and she can actually relax and go to sleep and know that her baby’s taken care of.”

Jonathan Reil said Bernal-Sosa being brought into custody was a prayer that was answered.

“At the visitation, I prayed for what I felt like was the first time for me, I feel like my prayers came true which is kind of mind-blowing,” Jonathon Reil said.

Bernal-Sosa is the father of Gomez’s child. At the time of the shooting, he was already wanted for failing to show up to a court after being accused of strangling her in Wyoming last year.

According to court documents, an acquaintance of Gomez was on the phone with her when the shooting happened. The acquaintance said he heard Gomez say Bernal-Sosa had an AR-15 and told him to get out of her car. The caller then heard five to six gunshots and the phone went silent.

Gomez, 22, was recalled by family as energetic and funny, with her aunt saying she was a “lovely person who wears her heart on her sleeve.” She left behind a 1-year-old daughter who has disabilities.
