Four people were shot and one of them killed in an early-morning shooting last summer at 19th and Mission Streets, but police have finally arrested a Daly City man and a Colma man who they think are responsible.
It was the wee hours of Sunday, August 21, shortly after the Mission District bars closed, when a shooting took place outside one of those bars just after 2 a.m., leaving four people shot at 19th and Mission Streets. Three of those victims had to be transported to Zuckerberg General Hospital, and one of them died. Police have still not released their identities.
Two arrests have been made in this homicide. Investigators developed probable cause to obtain arrest warrants for 28-year-old male Christopher Berrios-Mabutas of Daly City and 22-year-old male, Nickolas Ernesto Calderon of Colma. ➡️ https://t.co/HfSGPD6Xaq pic.twitter.com/BUB3hcQqeY— San Francisco Police (@SFPD) January 13, 2023
