Two suspects arrested in SF killing of alleged burglary accomplice

Two Oakland residents were arrested by San Francisco police on suspicion of murder in connection with the killing of a 30-year-old man who was fatally shot during the suspected burglary of a clothing store in The City’s Oceanview neighborhood Oct. 11.

Justin Irvin, 36, and Angel Grayson, 27, were jailed Friday after the homicide unit’s investigation led officers to Oakland, where the two lived, said Officer Grace Gatpandan.

Ryan Washington, of Oakland, was shot multiple times around 8 a.m. during the alleged burglary of the Dream Team clothing store at Plymouth Avenue and Broad Street. He later died at San Francisco General Hospital.

Gatpandan said the homicide was committed while police responded to reports of a commercial burglary in progress, but could not confirm further details. Police have not confirmed what roles in the burglary Irvin, Grayson and Washington are suspected of.

Donald Andrews, the owner of Dream Team, said a good friend of his was in the store when the shooting happened.

“Some guys from out of town from the Oakland area they tried to come for a quick easy come up and it didn’t go too well,” Andrews said. “They’re a real good friend of mine, and he would do anything to protect my life and protect what’s ours, and that’s really what [happened].”

Andrews said one of the male suspects — later identified as Irvin — allegedly opened fire multiple times, striking another suspected burglar fatally, he said. That man has been identified as Washington.

“It was really out of the blue,” said Andrews, whose business is known for community activism. Andrews was left wondering if he or his friends had done something to provoke the burglary, he said.

Dream Team has been closed down since the fatal shooting, but Andrews plans to reopen for business Tuesday morning. “I’ve been missing a lot of business since my shop’s been closed down,” he said.

In late August, just more than a month before the shooting, Dream Team hosted a back-to-school backpack and ice cream giveaway for local kids. “We’re just trying to gather everybody up and help them out with their lives,” Andrews said.
