A 19-year-old man who was arrested at the scene of a fatal officer-involved shooting last week has been charged with second-degree robbery and is set to appear in court Tuesday.

Victor Navarro-Flores was found in the same Honda Civic as 19-year-old Jesus Delgado-Duarte, who was allegedly hiding in the car’s trunk before San Francisco Police Department officers fatally shot him last Tuesday.

At the scene, officers arrested Navarro-Flores and 18-year-old Cristina Juarez, who was also found in the Honda.

Navarro-Flores was charged Friday and is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday. He remains jailed on $225,000 bail, according to jail records.

Prosecutors have not charged Juarez.

Police will hold a town hall meeting Monday to discuss the fatal police shooting and share facts with community members. The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. at Cesar Chavez Elementary School at 825 Shotwell St.

The fatal shooting unfolded around 10:35 p.m. when two people flagged down officers near 20th and Capp streets and said they had been robbed by the occupants of a black Honda Civic. Officers caught up with a vehicle matching that description nearby on Capp Street between 21st and 22nd streets.

After detaining one of the Honda’s occupants, officers noticed the trunk was ajar. Officers realized that a person was inside the trunk, later identified as Delgado-Duarte, and that’s when the officer-involved shooting occurred, according to police.

Delgado-Duarte was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police have not said exactly how the shooting occurred but said a gun was found in the car’s trunk afterward.

Several agencies are conducting separate investigations including the Police Department’s homicide detail, the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office, the city’s Department of Police Accountability, the SFPD Internal Affairs Division and the medical examiner’s office.

Anyone with information is asked to call the San Francisco police tip line at (415) 575-4444. Callers can give anonymous tips.
