SAN FRANCISCO—An increased reward has been offered to the public to help solve the murder of 24-year-old, Mitchell Warren in 2016. The reward increased to $75,000 for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect responsible for killing the victim. 

Warren’s family were in the Tenderloin area passing out flyers with investigators on Thursday, July 28, hoping to bring renewed attention to their son’s murder. The victim would have turned 30 in 2022. He died just eight days before his sister’s wedding. 

Back on September 30, 2016, at around 4:30 a.m., Warren was out walking a friend home when he was accosted by a suspect on Ellis and Polk Streets. The suspect attempted to rob Warren and shot him.

He was transported to Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital where he later died from injuries sustained.

The suspect was caught on surveillance video riding on the handles of a bicyclist bike shortly after the shooting transpired. Authorities have identified the bicyclist, but still have not been able to identify the shooter. During questioning, the bicyclist stated that he did not know the shooter personally.
