SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A man arrested on suspicion of shooting and killing another man in a South of Market apartment building early Saturday morning was released from jail without charges Tuesday evening, according to a spokesman for the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office.
The district attorney’s office did not file charges in the case by a 6 p.m. deadline so Amisi Sudi Kachepha, 68, was released Tuesday evening pending further investigation, district attorney’s spokesman Alex Bastian said.
Kachepha was arrested after he was found at the scene of the fatal shooting of Stephen Guillermo, 26, who was killed around 1:40 a.m. Saturday at his apartment building in the 900 block of Mission Street.
Guillermo’s family called on prosecutors to file charges against Kachepha at the city’s Board of Supervisor’s meeting today, alleging that Guillermo was shot after he accidentally entered Kachepha’s apartment in the same building.
According to his older cousin, Emil Guillermo, Stephen Guillermo was returning home after a night out with friends when he went to the wrong floor in his apartment building.
