Update: Arrest Made in Fatal Holly Court Shootings

An arrest has been made in connection with the shooting incident that left two people dead at the Holly Court housing project last weekend. From the San Francisco Chronicle:

A San Francisco man has been arrested for allegedly killing one of two men slain during a brawl at a birthday party in the Bernal Heights neighborhood, police said Monday.

Keo Sobrera, 24, is suspected of fatally shooting Pacific Som, 21, of San Francisco, said Officer Albie Esparza, a police spokesman.

Som and Rathanak Chea, 26, were killed and Chea’s brother Pounloue Chea, 30, was wounded when gunfire broke out at the Holly Courts public housing project on the 100 block of Appleton Avenue at about 7:20 p.m. Saturday, police and family members said.

Neighbors said the shooting came as the result of a fight at a birthday party. Police said they had detained several people at the scene and were still seeking a second assailant who fired the shots that killed Rathanak Chea.
