Andres Novelo, 26, and Josue Chan-Perez, 31, were arrested in connection with the killing of 25-year-old Casey Bissell, who was found suffering from at least one stab wound near 18th and Valencia streets around 2:30 a.m. Sunday, police said.

Bissell was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Both Novelo and Chan-Perez were arrested and booked into jail on suspicion of murder, attempted murder, conspiracy and aggravated assault, police said.

No other information about the case, including a possible motive, have been released. Anyone with information about the homicide is encouraged to call San Francisco police at (415) 575-4444 or to send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the message.

Bissell’s death was the second to occur within a few blocks of each other in the Mission District early Sunday. At about 2 a.m., 26-year-old Camilo Senchyna Beltran was fatally shot near 20th and Mission streets. No information about possible suspects in the shooting were available today.
