SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – Two 22-year-old San Francisco men have been arrested in connection with a fatal shooting in the city’s Parkside neighborhood earlier this month, police said.
Early Sept. 17, 22-year-old Edgar Yegiyan, of San Francisco, was found shot multiple times near 35th Avenue and Rivera Street. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police say Yegiyan was standing in front of a friend’s house smoking a cigarette when he was approached by the suspects and shot several times with an assault rifle. The suspects then ran away from the area.
Less than two weeks later, two suspects were arrested.
Around 2:45 p.m. Wednesday, officers arrested Konstantin Solodukhin at San Francisco International Airport, hours before he was set to leave on a one-way international flight.
Homicide investigators also arrested Oren Zakhrabov near his home in the South of Market neighborhood.
