SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Officials in San Francisco say two 18-year-olds used a gun stolen from a police officer’s personal car to kill a man last month.

Authorities say Erick Garcia Pineda and Daniel Cruz were both arrested this week on suspicion of killing Abel Enrique Esquivel Jr.

Investigators said Wednesday that the two had stolen the gun three days earlier from the car of an officer whose name was not released.

Police union President Martin Halloran says the officer is a decorated veteran who didn’t know the gun had been stolen until after the killing, and was “devastated” to hear how it had been used.

Handguns stolen from law enforcement officers’ cars have been used in high-profile Bay Area killings like the slaying of Kate Steinle on a San Francisco pier in 2015 and the killing of 27-year-old Oakland muralist Antonio Ramos last year.
