20-year-old man arrested in connection with October homicide

Police have arrested a 20-year-old man on suspicion of murder in connection with a homicide in the South of Market neighborhood in October.

Alfredo Dixon, 33, was shot and killed at 5:50 p.m. Oct. 8 at Natoma and Sixth streets, according to police. Few details are known about the killing, but later that month the Rev. Michael Quinn held a prayer service for Dixon at the site of the homicide as part of his effort to honor those who lost their lives to violence.
