Last week, San Francisco police circulated a video showing two men who were wanted for questioning in the murder of 20-year-old Ronnie Goodman last month. Today, police have announced they've arrested two brothers in connection to the fatal stabbing.

On Sunday, police arrested 21-year-old Luis Gutierrez and his older brother 26-year-old Javier Gutierrez, both San Francisco residents. The brothers were charged with homicide and conspiracy for the stabbing death of Goodman at the corner of 24th and Capp streets.

Just before midnight on Sept. 9, Goodman was at the above intersection when he was killed; Goodman was rushed to San Francisco General Hospital where he later died. Authorities say two men were seen running from the scene. However, police would not confirm that the Gutierrez brothers were the ones seen in the surveillance video circulated last week. They did say the video generated plenty of tips and phone calls, and presumably good leads.

"We’d like thank the numerous calls from the public and assisting us in this case," Esparza says.

This case is far from over, which means any witnesses are still encouraged to contact the SFPD Homicide Detail at (415) 553-1145 with any additional information. They can also provide an anonymous tip at (415) 575-4444 or text-a-tip to TIP411 with SFPD at the start of the message.

Here's the video:

  • 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.'"
