San Francisco prosecutors charged a man with murder Wednesday nearly six months after a stray bullet killed a 65-year-old woman in the Oceanview neighborhood.

Jonathan Santos, 24, is facing charges in connection with the killing of Lian Xiu Wu near Plymouth Avenue and Broad Street on March 30.

The District Attorney’s Office filed a murder charge, three counts of attempted murder and five counts of assault with a semiautomatic firearm against Santos on Wednesday.

Two other men were shot during the March incident.

Santos is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday.
