On June 18, 2021, at approximately 3:34 p.m., San Francisco Police officers from Ingleside Station responded to the 100 block of Raymond Avenue regarding a robbery that had just occurred.  The victim, a 24-year-old San Francisco resident told officers that he was walking on Raymond Avenue when the suspect exited a car, pointed a handgun, and demanded his property.  The victim surrendered his wallet and the suspect fled in the waiting car described as gray Honda Civic.

On June 24, 2021, at approximately 5:00 a.m., SFPD officers from Ingleside Station responded to a reported shooting near the Balboa Park BART Station. Upon arrival, they located the shooting victim, 21-year-old Oakland resident Kiemariah Richmond suffering from an apparent gunshot wound to his chest. Richmond was transported to a local hospital for treatment. Officers located two Glock style handguns at the scene, one of which was recovered from a gray Honda Civic which was the suspect vehicle from the June 18th robbery.  The handgun recovered from the Honda also matched the description of the firearm used in the robbery. Investigators determined that Richmond was the suspect in this robbery.

On July 3, 2021, Richmond was released from the hospital and booked at the San Francisco County Jail for robbery (211 PC), false imprisonment (236 PC), assault with a deadly weapon / semi-automatic firearm (245(b) PC), battery (242 PC), carrying a loaded firearm with the intent to commit a felony (25800 PC), carrying a loaded firearm (25850(a) PC), and carrying a concealed firearm (25400(a)(2) PC).
