Two officers saw the shooting and immediately arrested Luu, but were unable to revive the victim, 35-year-old Cuong Lu, also of San Francisco.

Prosecutors have charged Luu with one count of murder with an allegation of the use of a firearm.

Luu appeared in San Francisco Superior Court this morning, but his arraignment and plea on the charges was postponed until Tuesday while he awaits the appointment of an attorney from the public defender’s office.

Police have not discussed a possible motive for the killing but have said the suspect and the victim knew each other, and began arguing inside the restaurant.

    The Chronicle isn’t remaining any quieter than usual. They never cover news on the west side of the city. Why should they change now?
