San Francisco police today released surveillance photographs of two suspects in the slaying of a man during a home-invasion robbery Wednesday evening in a residential neighborhood in the city’s Sunset District.

Police are hoping for leads in the fatal shooting of 44-year-old Xiao “Ben” Xiong Luo.
Luo, of San Francisco, was shot at a home in the 2400 block of Moraga St. at about 5:45 p.m., according to police.

Luo, who was not bound, was pronounced dead at the scene. The others were not injured.
No arrests have been made.

Police released four photographs of the suspects taken from surveillance cameras mounted on the home. Two of the photographs depict a suspect walking a victim into the residence.

While police have not said what, if anything, was stolen, the photographs appear to indicate the suspects left with a bag they did not bring into the house.

Police Chief George Gascon today acknowledged media reports that the home may have been used for prostitution, but said, “We’re not prepared to call it a brothel yet.”

Gascon said he wanted to be careful not to implicate the victims in illegal activity, or compromise the active probe into Luo’s murder.

“It’s a very complex investigation,” he said. “There are a lot of moving parts.”

According to police spokeswoman Lt. Lyn Tomioka, the suspects have been described as “Hispanic males” and did not speak Chinese to the victims.
