Tenderloin Station Update: Cameras Key to Nabbing Homicide Suspect

Update from Tenderloin Station - Captain Gary Jimenez
Many of our neighbors have heard about the man who was killed on Wednesday morning at 2 AM, at the intersection of Taylor and Turk. What many do not know is that the suspects’ descriptions were limited until two of your Day Watch Foot Beat officers came to work, and hearing of the incident at their lineup, went out to develop a more complete description, including the possible identity of the culprits. Within hours, the Officers located those believed to be responsible for this act and made the arrests. The alleged perpetrators are in custody and face a prosecution where the city cameras at this intersection will be the indisputable witness to what occurred.
