ID #12-5

Five years after a man was shot and killed outside a San Francisco nightclub, police are asking for help solving the case and today will be joining the victim’s mother to hand out flyers about the murder. Alberto Casillas, 20, was driving his silver GMC Yukon SUV in the area of Folsom and 13th streets in the city’s South of Market neighborhood when he was shot at 2:17 a.m. on Jan. 7, 2007.

Hours earlier, Casillas had been confronted by two suspects at Club Caliente, a nearby nightclub that has since gone out of business. The suspects had brandished a firearm during that encounter, police said. As Casillas and his friends were driving away from the area, the suspects fired multiple rounds into the driver’s side of the Yukon. Casillas was shot and later died at San Francisco General Hospital, according to police.
