San Francisco Police Are Seeking Public Assistance in Locating Second Suspect in Jace Young Homicide Investigation 21-004(a)

As the one-year anniversary of Jace Young’s murder approaches, the SFPD have obtained an arrest warrant for the remaining suspect.

On July 4, 2020, at approximately 10:44 p.m., San Francisco Police responded to the unit block of Whitfield Court for a report of a shooting. Officers arrived and found a juvenile victim suffering from a gunshot wound. The victim, 6-year-old Jace Young, was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. Despite the best efforts of the medical staff, Jace succumbed to his injuries. A second shooting victim was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

An investigation by the SFPD Homicide Detail led to the identity of a suspect. On January 6, 2021, SFPD Homicide investigators arrested 18-year-old James Harbor of San Francisco and booked him on charges of homicide (187 PC), attempted homicide (664/187 PC), and carrying a loaded firearm with the intent to commit a felony (25800(a) PC).

The further investigation led to the identity of a second suspect, 18-year-old Deshaune Lumpkin of San Francisco. SFPD Homicide investigators obtained an arrest warrant for Lumpkin (who was 17 years old at the time of the incident) for the violations of murder (187 PC), attempted murder (664/187 PC), carrying a loaded firearm with the intent to commit a felony (25800(a) PC) and conspiracy (182(a)(1) PC).

Homicide investigators are asking Lumpkin, who has ties to the Bayview District community, to turn himself in at any San Francisco Police Station.

Investigators are also asking the public’s help in locating Lumpkin who is considered armed and dangerous. If you see Lumpkin do not approach him. Note his location, clothing, and any vehicle description and immediately call 9-1-1.
