Suspect in fatal shooting outside pot club arrested

One of two men suspected in the shooting death of a 23-year-old man outside a San Francisco pot club on Sept. 14 will be arraigned in San Francisco Superior Court Thursday morning on murder and robbery charges, prosecutors said late Wednesday.

A second suspect remains at large and is considered armed and dangerous.

Ijeoma Ogbuagu, 20, of San Francisco, was arrested without incident in Burlingame at about 2 p.m. Tuesday, according to police.

Police are also seeking 24-year-old Julius Hughes in connection with the fatal shooting of Royshawn Holden, of San Francisco, at about 9:30 p.m. outside the Mr. Nice Guy marijuana dispensary at the corner of Valencia Street and Duboce Avenue.

Holden was shot during a robbery attempt, according to prosecutors.

Officers found Holden lying in the street, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He died at San Francisco General Hospital.

Anyone with information about Hughes is asked to call the San Francisco police homicide detail at (415) 553-1145 or the confidential tip line at (415) 575-4444.

Ogbuagu is expected to be arraigned in court Thursday at 9 a.m., according to the San Francisco District Attorney's office.
