After a three-hour standoff, San Francisco police on Sunday arrested a 22-year-old man suspected of shooting and killing a 26-year-old man in the city’s Excelsior neighborhood on Saturday.
The victim was later identified as Luis Velasquez-Mejia, 26, of San Francisco, according to the Medical Examiner’s Office.
Police responded to the 500 block of Naples Street at 11:45 p.m. and found a man suffering from a gunshot wound who died at the scene.
An investigation led police to identify 22-year-old San Francisco resident Jonathan Escobar as the suspect.
Police served a search warrant at a home in the 2800 block of 24th Street on Sunday at 11 p.m. The suspect fled out of a window onto the roof of the home and did not comply with orders, according to police.
Tactical officers then entered the home and arrested Escobar after a three-hour standoff. He was booked into San Francisco County Jail on suspicion of homicide.
The investigation is ongoing and SFPD is asking anyone with information to call a 24-hour police tip line at (415) 575-4444. Crime
