Two suspects have now been arrested in connection with the Jan. 23 shooting in southwest Bernal Heights that left one man dead and a woman badly wounded.

Duby Ortiz-Guardado, 20, was walking with a woman near the intersection of Richland and Leese at 5:13 pm when gunfire rang out. Both Ortiz-Guardado and the woman were hit; Ortiz-Guardado later declared dead at San Francisco General Hospital.

Two men have been arrested in connection with the homicide. San Francisco residents Oscar Guadron-Diaz, 18, and Jorge Howard, 19, were taken into custody.

A statement from SFPD Ingleside Station detailed the arrests:

An investigation by the SFPD Homicide Unit led to the identification of the suspects. On January 25, 2018 at approximately 2:30 PM the SFPD Special Investigation Division (SID) officers located and arrested Oscar Guadron-Diaz, an 18 year-old San Francisco resident, and Jorge Howard, a 19 year-old San Francisco resident, on the unit block of Laura Street. Guadron-Diaz was booked into the San Francisco County Jail on murder, attempted murder, mayhem and numerous other gun related charges. Howard was booked into the San Francisco County Jail on felony reckless driving and accessory charges.

CBS Bay Area adds that Guadron-Diaz is being held without bail:

Guadron-Diaz, a stocky man with dark-framed glasses and dark hair in a crew cut, postponed entering a plea Monday and is scheduled to return to court on Thursday. He was ordered to remain in custody without bail pending a bail hearing.

According to a Facebook profile, Ortiz-Guardado and the female victim both previously attended Mission High School.

  1. Another victim for our gun-crazed society. Did they get the person who brought his or her AK-47 to the party on Banks Street a couple of months ago? The one who shot up all the cars and houses.
