SAN FRANCISCO—San Francisco Police Officers apprehended 19 year-old Christopher Chiquillo after a traffic stop on February 11.   Bayview Station officers were in the region between 3rd Street and Oakdale Street when Chiquillo was spotted inside a four door Silver VW car at a stop light. Authorities spotted the suspect opening an alcoholic beverage and drinking while he waited for the red light to turn green.

“Investigating officers also determined that Chiquillo was involved in a domestic violence incident on February 10, 2013, just one day prior, where he had fired shots at the victim using a silver pistol,” as stated in a press release from the SFPD website.

The suspect was charged with possession of a prohibited weapon, domestic violence, traffic violation and attempted murder.
