San Francisco police have arrested an alleged Norteños gang member, age fifteen, in connection with the August 30 slaying of Hog & Rocks line cook Gaspar Puch-tzek. The suspect, who has not been identified because of his age, was already in custody in an unrelated case at the Juvenile Justice Center, as the Chron reports. He’s now being held on suspicion of murder with a gang enhancement, and firearms violations.
Puch-tzek was mistaken for a member of the Sureños gang and shot in the head around 12:30 a.m. August 30, while standing outside the restaurant with two coworkers smoking a cigarette. A fundraiser two weeks ago helped raise money for Puch-tzek’s wife and children.
