Police arrest San Bruno man for July 6 murder
July 25, 2014, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

Police Thursday announced an arrest in the shooting death of a man killed during a bloody Fourth of July weekend in the city’s Bayview District.

Antonio Cortez, 37, was shot in front of a home just before 3 a.m. on July 6 on the 1700 block of La Salle Avenue. Another man, 49, was also hit by the gunfire.

Cortez died at San Francisco General Hospital, while the second victim has since recovered from serious injuries, according to police.

On Thursday morning, police arrested Marckus Mendez, 20, of San Bruno, on suspicion of murder, three counts of attempted murder, being a convicted felon in possession of ammunition and a probation violation.

Police say Mendez is also connected with a second shooting that occurred earlier in the first block of Cameron Way. One victim in that shooting was found at the scene, while the second was taken to San Francisco General Hospital. Both victims are expected to survive.

Mendez was arrested in San Bruno and booked into San Francisco County Jail, according to police.

He is being held without bail, according to the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department.

There were four fatal shootings over the Independence Day weekend and more gun violence has occurred since in the Bayview-Hunters Point area of the city.
