SFPD Arrests Armed Robbery and Shooting Suspects 22-147
On 10/11/22 at approximately 12:00 am, San Francisco Police Officers from Mission Station responded to the 3200 block of 23rd Street for a report of a shooting. Three suspects approached the victims in a white, four-door sedan. The male suspects exited the vehicle and proceeded to rob the victims, shot one victim, and fled the scene in the white sedan. The victim was transported to a local hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. During the robbery, the suspects brandished firearms, which included a rifle.
San Francisco Police Department’s Robbery detail took over the investigation. Investigators gathered information and disseminated a department-wide crime alert for our officers to be cognizant of the armed and dangerous subjects as well as their vehicle.
On October 12, 2022, at approximately 11:00 a.m., dedicated San Francisco Police Officers on their way to work, observed the suspect vehicle described in the crime alert, traveling into San Francisco.
The off-duty officer notified additional officers from the SFPD Narcotics unit who were working in a plain clothes capacity. The officers observed the suspect vehicle parked at 7th and Folsom Streets where three males exited the vehicle and entered a business on the 1100 block of Folsom Street.
Investigators from the Robbery detail were notified and responded along with patrol officers from Southern Station. A plan was formulated to apprehend the suspects who were possibly armed and considered dangerous. Southern Station patrol officers approached the building and quickly detained one of the males, 22-year-old Kiemariah Richmond of San Francisco, without incident. The officers seized a concealed firearm from Richmond on scene. In an attempt to escape, the other two males fled on foot through the backdoor of the business and up to the rooftop.
Officers on scene coordinated efforts and set up a perimeter around the block to prevent escape. Officers gave multiple commands to the males on the rooftops to surrender, but the males refused to comply and retreated into the building. A short time later, the males attempted to flee on foot through the perimeter and a foot pursuit ensued. Officers quickly apprehended both males identified as, 21-year-old Keyari Carter of San Francisco, and a 15-year-old male juvenile. Officers located and seized a concealed firearm from Carter on scene.
During the course of the investigation, officers located and seized a rifle from the rooftop where the suspects were seen.
