Two men were in Bay Area jails this week in connection with a fatal shooting last year in San Francisco's Lower Haight neighborhood.

Police said officers from the department's Northern Station responded around 9:15 p.m. June 30, 2022, to Rose Street between Buchanan and Webster streets, around the corner from Haight Street.

When officers arrived, they found a 20-year-old man suffering from gunshot wounds. After providing aid, other first responders took him to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. 

Investigators soon identified two suspects and obtained warrants for their arrests. On June 28, investigators learned one of the suspects, Kameron Kaywood, 35, was being held in a Contra Costa County jail without bail in an unrelated incident. 

Police said Kaywood was served a homicide warrant, and a Contra Costa County records check Thursday shows he was served an out-of-county warrant on July 3 and faces a hearing on July 31 in Martinez Superior Court

Officers found a second suspect, Delvon Carter, 25, in South San Francisco on Wednesday and took him into custody without incident. Carter was booked into San Francisco County jail Wednesday evening on a homicide arrest warrant, according to a San Francisco County records check. 

Police said its investigation into the incident remains active. Police have not shared any updates in a separate homicide investigation last month on Rose Street.

Correction: A previous version of this story stated the killing was in 2023, when in fact, it was in 2022.
