SFPD pursuit ends in homicide arrest in Outer Mission

Police arrested a man Thursday afternoon in connection with a fatal shooting from earlier this week after a brief police pursuit in the Outer Mission, according to police and a source with knowledge of the arrest.

Officer Robert Rueca, a San Francisco police spokesperson, said officers spotted a wanted vehicle around 2:34 p.m. near Alemany Boulevard and Regent Street. A pursuit began when the driver refused to stop for the officers. Rueca said police arrested the suspect when he pulled over near Laura Street and Huron Avenue.

Rueca would not say why the suspect was wanted, but a source with knowledge of the arrest told the San Francisco Examiner that the suspect was arrested in connection with a fatal shooting Tuesday.

Duby Ortiz-Guardado, 20, was shot and killed Tuesday evening in Bernal Heights near Leese Street and Richland Avenue. Ortiz-Guardado was one of two victims shot. The other victim was a young woman taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

Reuca did not release information about the suspect as to “not compromise” the investigation. Rueca said police are continuing to conduct an investigation in the area.

“There’s going to be congestion in the area but the public is not at risk of anything,’ Rueca said.

Rueca said there were no reported injuries or reports of property damage.
