Agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation carried out an early morning raid Monday at a San Francisco home but shared few details about a reason for their presence or any items recovered.

Around 6 a.m., loud bangs preceded a heavy FBI presence outside a home on Lisbon Street in Excelsior, with agents seen boxing up items from the home for at least two hours after, according to Mission Local.

San Francisco police were apparently alerted to the incident, responding within two minutes to a possible shots-fired call at Lisbon Street and Italy Avenue shortly after 6:10 a.m. Monday. Soon after, officers determined the call was without merit. Police acknowledged Tuesday's call but declined direct comment, deferring to the FBI.

'Unrelated to a Missing Child Report'

When The Standard asked for comment, an FBI spokesperson said its activity was "unrelated to a missing child report" before adding that "we are unable to comment further at this time" but that the raid was court-authorized.

Neighbors in the area told Mission Local that FBI agents had been canvassing the area asking for information about Kento Hernesto Juarez, a missing child who was last seen in February 2019.

On Wednesday, an FBI spokesman told The Standard that the raid was linked to charges a federal prosecutor filed Tuesday against a 20-year-old man in connection with the death of a 32-year-old victim whose body was found Nov. 12 at Crissy Field.
