San Diego police on Friday named a suspect in the shooting death of a self-employed cab driver in La Jolla and asked for the public’s help in tracking him down.

An arrest warrant was issued this week for Ismael Raul Lopez, 28, in connection with the Sept. 28 slaying of Mir Madet Sahou, San Diego police homicide Lt. Bryan Pendleton said in a statement.

Sahou was found dead in the 6800 block of La Jolla Scenic Drive North shortly after 11:30 p.m. Sept. 28.

Witnesses saw Sahou’s cab pull up to a curb and two males got out, along with the victim, police said. An argument was overheard, followed by a struggle and gunfire. A motive is unclear.

Lopez is Hispanic, about 5 feet 9 and 160-180 pounds, Pendleton said.

Anyone with information about the suspect’s whereabouts was asked to call police at (619) 531-2000.
