19-Year-Old Killed In Mission District Officer-Involved Shooting Identified



A 19-year-old man who died in a police shooting Tuesday night in San Francisco’s Mission District has been identified as Jesus Delgado-Duarte, according to the San Francisco medical examiner’s office.

Delgado-Duarte was killed as officers were investigating a robbery near 20th and Capp streets around 10:35 p.m.

According to police, two people flagged down officers and described being robbed by the occupants of a black Honda Civic. Officers caught up with a vehicle matching that description nearby, on Capp Street between 21st and 22nd streets.

Two suspects in the vehicle were detained.

Officers tried to detain a third person, later identified as Delgado-Duarte, who was reportedly in the car’s trunk and that’s when the officer-involved shooting occurred, according to police.

Police have not said exactly how the shooting occurred. A gun was found in the car’s trunk, police said.

A handful of members of the group Justice For Luis Gongora Pat rallied outside the Mission police station at Valencia and 17th streets Wednesday to protest the latest officer-involved shooting.

A vigil and march was also held by Delgado-Duarte’s family and friends Wednesday evening at the site of the shooting.

Several agencies are conducting separate investigations including the Police Department’s homicide detail, the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office, the city’s Department of Police Accountability, the SFPD Internal Affairs Division and the medical examiner’s office.

Per policy, police will hold a town hall meeting within 10 days of the officer-involved shooting to inform the community about what happened.

Anyone with information is asked to call the San Francisco police tip line at (415) 575-4444. Callers can give anonymous tips.
