Murder charges dropped against man arrested in May 2013 Hunters Point killing

A San Francisco man arrested in connection with the May 2013 killing of Cameron Myers in Hunters Point was released from jail Tuesday after the first degree murder charges against him were dropped, according to his attorneys.

Zamora, 25, was arrested in Las Vegas on May 21 of last year, six days after Myers' death in the 800 block of Innes Avenue, near India Basin Shoreline Park. Three days earlier, a 15-year-old boy from Nevada County was also arrested in connection with the killing. His status remains unknown.

Zamora has been in custody for the past nine months, and is happy to be joining his family and relieved to have been found vindicated before his preliminary trial was set to take place this week, his attorneys said.

“Today was a great day for Andrew and a great day for justice,” said Adam Gasner, one of Zamora's attorneys.

The circumstances of Myers' death remain elusive. Myers reportedly lived in Auburn and had little ties to The City. He was heard screaming about 1:45 a.m. the day of his death and was found bleeding from multiple stab wounds.

After the killing, investigators found evidence that led them to Nevada County where they arrested the teenager.

Myers' killing left his loved ones stunned. He had no criminal record and was set to join the military.

It remains unknown what led police to arrest Zamora in the case, but based on lack of evidence, prosecutors agreed to dismiss all charges and release him.

“I believed in my client's innocence from our first meeting and never wavered in my belief,” attorney Rebecca Feigelson said.
