San Francisco homicide investigators caught up with the armed and dangerous man who they believe is partly responsible for the shooting death of 21-year-old Jesus Solis.

On Tuesday, police arrested 20-year-old Dylan Lemalie of San Francisco at the Hall of Justice and charged him with murder. He had been on the lam since Sept. 16, when Solis was fatally shot on the 1200 block of Treat Street during an altercation shortly after 4 p.m.

Last week, police arrested 18-year-old Adrian Landers on suspicion of murder after police spoke with him at the Hall of Justice. At that time, they issued an public alert on Lemalie describing the fugitive as armed and dangerous.

Homicide investigators spoke with members of Lemalie's family, who convinced him to surrender to authorities.

That same week, an undercover police officer shot Oliver Barcenas, who they say was on his way to avenge the killing of Solis. According to police, Barcenas pulled a Tec-9 pistol, which was loaded with 25 rounds,

and turned toward the cop, who fired multiple times, injuring the alleged gang member. Barcenas is scheduled to appear in court later this week.

Anyone with additional information is encouraged to contact Inspector Kevin Jones, Inspector John Miller or Sgt. Kyra Delaney of the Homicide Detail at 553-1145. Members of the public can also use the anonymous tip line at 575-4444 or Text-a-Tip to TIP411.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
