Pacifica police have arrested a man they suspect of committing the city's first homicide since 2000.
Police say they arrested 24-year-old Marc Anthony Furlan on suspicion of murdering 24-year-old Keith Coffey on Wednesday morning.

That's when police responded to a 911 call about disturbance in a house Dell Road.
When officers arrived, they found Coffey unconscious on the ground in front of the home. Police soon determined Coffey was dead.

Police said their initial investigation led them to believe that Furlan and Coffey were friends and that they fought for reasons that police have not made public.

Furlan was booked into the San Mateo County Jail.

Police stressed in a statement Thursday that the suspected homicide is an unusual violent event in the typically safe community.
