UPLAND, Calif. (AP) - Police have made an arrest in the hit-and-run death of an 11-year-old Southern California boy who was struck as he walked to school.

Police say Isaiah Shelton was struck Thursday morning as he stepped into a crosswalk in Upland, east of Los Angeles. He died at a hospital.

Police asked for help in locating a white Jeep Cherokee.

Lt. Alan Ansara tells the Riverside Press-Enterprise that investigators later arrested a man and found a damaged Cherokee at a nearby apartment complex.

The suspect's name hasn't been released.

The boy was a sixth-grader at Cabrillo Elementary School. Grief counselors were sent to the campus.

School district Superintendent Alex Ruvalcaba says the district hasn't had any crossing guards since the city stopped paying for them in 2009.
