Monday was meant to be the most important day of Jason Mosley’s life. The 28-year-old desk attendant at the Tenderloin Housing Clinic had a date at City Hall. He and his pregnant fiancée were going to get married.

But less than 24 hours before Mosley was to say his wedding vows, he was killed in front of the Western Addition home where he cared for his 76-year-old grandmother.

Mosley’s killing was one of two reported Sunday night; the other was a Sunset District fratricide.

It was 6 p.m. when someone rang the doorbell, according to his mother, Selina Arceneaux. Mosley went outside and gunshots rang out. A pair of security guards fired at the gunman, who dropped the weapon and ran off.

Mosley died instantly.

“Everybody loved Jason,” Arceneaux said. “He wasn’t in a gang. The only thing that my family can think of is that it’s a case of mistaken identity.”

Investigators are still searching for the suspect, according to homicide Lt. Mike Stasko.

Two hours before Mosley’s death, investigators were called to the Sunset District, where a stabbing left one man dead.

Anton Bajjalieh, 53, is suspected of killing his brother Isam Bajjalieh after a heated argument, according to Stasko.

Anton Bajjalieh fled before police arrived, only to be arrested at about 2 a.m. when he returned to the home where the two brothers lived.
