Authorities have arrested a second suspect in a fatal stabbing in San Francisco’s Hunters Point neighborhood earlier this month, a police spokesman said today.
Las Vegas Metropolitan police arrested Andrew Zamora, 24, of San Francisco, on May 21, San Francisco police spokesman Albie Esparza said.
Esparza said detectives developed leads during the investigation into the May 15 murder of 20-year-old Cameron Myers that led to an arrest warrant being issued for Zamora.
Three days prior to Zamora’s arrest, on May 18, San Francisco police arrested a 15-year-old boy in Nevada City, Calif., in connection with Myers’ killing, Esparza said.
Myers was found stabbed on a sidewalk near Innes Avenue and Arelious Walker Drive after San Francisco police responded to reports of a man screaming at about 1:45 a.m. on May 15. He later died at San Francisco General Hospital.
Both suspects are awaiting extradition back to San Francisco, Esparza said.
Details of what led to the arrests are being withheld because the investigation is ongoing, Esparza said.
Esparza said police are “not ruling out” the possibility that there are additional suspects in the case.
“One thing to take from this case is, no matter where you are, we will find you,” he said.
Anyone with information about the stabbing or the suspects is asked to call San Francisco police at (415) 553-1145, or anonymously at (415) 575-4444, or send a text to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the body of the message.
