SFPD Seeking Assistance in 2007 Unsolved Murder

Police are asking for assistance solving the shooting death of a 20-year-old man that occurred eight years ago after an argument at a San Francisco nightclub.

The murder of Alberto Casillas at 2:17 a.m. on Jan. 7, 2007, remains unsolved today despite a $250,000 reward offered in the case, police said.

Casillas was shot while driving his silver GMC Yukon SUV near the corner of 13th and Folsom streets by two men who had apparently brandished a gun at him earlier that night in Club Caliente.

Witnesses told police the two suspects were black men between 18 and 25 years old.

One suspect was described as a large man with a dark complexion standing 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighing over 200 pounds. He was wearing a long black jacket and a black T-shirt with a white square on the chest area at the time of the crime, police said.

The other man was described as standing 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing 160 pounds. He was wearing a dark T-shirt and had short hair with a prominent widow’s peak, police said.

The night of the murder the two men were driving a silver car, possibly a Honda Civic or a Nissan Maxima, with a low spoiler on the back and a partial license plate of 166.

Anyone with information about the case has been asked to call Gianrico Pierucci of the San Francisco police Homicide Detail at (415) 553-1145 or the anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444.
