Police have arrested three men in connection with the March 16 homicide of 26-year-old Demondre Perkins, who was apparently inside of Al Hamra, a restaurant on 16th Street, when he was shot to death.
The San Francisco Police Department said that, on Monday, they arrested 19-year-old Oscar Ticas of Alameda, along with 20-year-old Rodrigo Tellez and 20-year-old Bryan Moreno, both of San Francisco. All three have been booked into San Francisco County Jail.
Ticas was booked on charges of homicide, conspiracy, carrying a loaded firearm, negligent discharge of a firearm and participating in a gang.
Tellez was booked on charges of homicide, conspiracy, felon in possession of a firearm, committing a felony while out on bail or released on own recognizance, and participating in a gang.
Moreno was booked at San Francisco County Jail on charges of homicide, conspiracy and participating in a gang.
“This case is still under active investigation,” the department said in a press release.
Perkins appeared to work with Larkin Street Youth Services, a nonprofit that focuses on at-risk youth, according to his LinkedIn profile. An altar set up in front of the restaurant days after the shooting indicated his nickname was “Spunks.”
