Two people were arrested Tuesday on suspicion of fatally shooting a 19-year-old man during an attempted robbery in San Francisco’s Portola neighborhood last week, police said.
Officers responded at 8:02 p.m. last Thursday to a report of a shooting in the area of Felton and Colby streets and found the victim, who was pronounced dead at the scene. He has been identified by the medical examiner’s office as San Francisco resident Kelvin Chew.
Investigators believe Chew was shot during an attempted robbery and eventually identified 26-year-old Fagamalama Pasene and 19-year-old Zion Young, both San Francisco residents, as the two suspects. They were both taken into custody at about 1:40 p.m. Tuesday.
Pasene was booked into jail on suspicion of homicide, attempted robbery, conspiracy and being an accessory to a crime after the fact, while Young was booked on suspicion of homicide, attempted robbery, conspiracy and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
