SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Police have identified the ten San Francisco police officers who opened fire a total of 99 times at an allegedly armed 19-year-old, fatally striking him about 25 times, last week in the city’s Mission District.
The officers have been identified as Stephen Cassinelli, Corbyn Carroll, Loren Chiu, John Ishida, Juan Gustilo, Nicholas Nagai, Sean O’Rourke, Colby Smets, Ari Smith-Russack and Joshua Tupper, according to police.
Police did not say how long each of the officers has been with the department.
The March 6 shooting unfolded when two people said they had been robbed at gunpoint by the occupants of a black Honda Civic. After locating a vehicle matching that description on Capp Street near 21st Street around 10:35 p.m., officers ordered all of the Honda’s occupants out.
Officer ordered all of the Honda’s occupants out. Victor Navarro-Flores, 19, eventually exited the driver’s seat and officers detained him.
Officers then ordered Delgado-Duarte out of the halfway open trunk, where he was hiding. After yelling several commands at him, first in English and then in Spanish, officers fired a beanbag round at him.
On the video obtained by KPIX 5, a female officer’s voice can clearly be heard saying in Spanish — “Show me you left hand, show me your left hand, show me your left hand. We are going to shoot. Show me your left hand.”
The suspect opens the trunk and appears to fire at police.
In response, the 10 officers fired their weapons at him, killing him. Delgado-Duarte was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
After the shooting, an 18-year-old woman who was still inside the car was ordered out and detained. She was apparently uninjured.
Police said officers recovered a 9mm handgun from the Honda’s trunk.
Several community groups have expressed outrage over the recent fatal police shooting. Mission-based activist group Justice for Luis Gongora Pat has specifically asked SFPD to release the police audio of the incident and the names of all the officers involved, including the officer who gave Delgado-Duarte the commands in Spanish.
According to Delgado-Duarte’s family, he had lived most of life in San Francisco, coming from Mexico when he was young and attending Bryant Elementary School, Aptos Middle School and Life Learning Academy.
Navarro Flores is being charged with robbery and made an appearance in court Friday morning. He is out of custody and was wearing an ankle monitor. He has not entered a plea.
Delgado-Duarte’s death is being investigated by several agencies including the Police Department’s homicide detail and internal affairs division, the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office and the Department of Police Accountability.
