Officers involved in fatal barbershop shootout identified

The San Francisco Police Department has released the names of two officers who fired shots in a fatal shootout at an Excelsior District Barbershop on March 21.

The officers have been identified as Kevin Endo and Tess Casey. Both officers are assigned to SFPD’s Field Operations Bureau.

The shooting resulted in the death of the 21-year-old suspect, Suisun City resident Jehad Eid, who died at the hospital after the incident. A minor and a police officer were among the five people injured after the officers and Eid exchanged gunfire at the Amazon Barber Shop on Geneva Avenue and London Street.

Police have neither released the identity of the injured officer, who was shot once, nor the condition of the minor.

At 4:40 p.m. on March 21, the officers responded to reports of a Eid allegedly threatening his family with a gun near the 200 block of Amazon Avenue and tracked him into the barbershop.

At a town hall hearing held about the incident on March 29, police said that Endo and Casey fired a total of 26 shots at Eid, striking him 18 times. Eid discharged a total of nine rounds from a handgun.

It is unclear who fired first, and whether gunfire from Eid or the two officers struck the bystanders.

SFPD’s Homicide Detail and Internal Affairs Division, as well as the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office, The Department of Police Accountability and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner are investigating the incident. Crime
