Police late Monday arrested a suspect in connection to a deadly shooting at San Francisco's Twin Peaks.
The lookout turned into a crime scene around 2:06 a.m. Sunday when three people were shot, according to police, who canvassed the popular tourist haunt. The shooting left two men dead and another fighting for his life.
Police said the suspect, who allegedly knew and targeted his three victims, fled the scene by carjacking a dark-gray GMC Yukon Denali with California license plates reading 5PJU851.
The suspect, who is from San Pablo, was arrested during a traffic stop in Richmond without incident, police said The stolen vehicle was also recovered, but investigators said they have yet to recover the gun used in the shooting.
The San Francisco medical examiner's office on Monday identified the men killed as Julio Peraza, 21, and Rene Mora, 19, both Santa Rosa residents. Police initially said the slain men were 22 and 20 years old, respectively.
The third victim, a still unidentified 18-year-old man, remains hospitalized with life-threatening injuries, according to police.
Peraza's family is raising money for his funeral. Family members said the landscaper was just hanging out with friends when he was killed.
"It's pretty shocking, yeah, because it's so uncharacteristic of our city — you know the way our city is," said Richard Gazowsky of San Francisco.
San Francisco police leaders said they planned to station a number of officers at Twin Peaks through the holiday weekend. They had begun to increase their presence at the lookout — an area notorious for car break-ins — starting Jan. 27 when a woman was robbed and sprayed with Mace.
