News UPDATE: RIP Adolfo Bravo!

More information was published today about the shooting across the street from my house. It doesn't actually say this, but I believe the murderers are wanted dead or alive, so proceed accordingly. From the San Francisco Chronicle:

A $17,000 reward is being offered for tips leading to the conviction of the person who shot and killed a Berkeley man as he was walking home with his fiancee, police said today.

Adolfo Ignacio Celedon Bravo, 35, and his fiancee were walking home from a party when they were attacked by two robbers at Adeline and Emerson streets in south Berkeley about 3:40 a.m. Sunday, police said.

Celedon was shot numerous times and died at Highland Hospital in Oakland later Sunday. It was the Chilean native's 35th birthday.

The woman, whose name was not released, was punched and suffered minor injuries.

"I hope that this pain and this bad feeling will begin to pass within the days and the months, and finally we will remember Adolfo the way he was, a funny guy who loved life and was very happy to be in San Francisco with the love of his life, preparing to marry and looking forward to the future," said Alvaro Farru Betinyani, Celedon's brother-in-law.

The killers were described only as two black men between 25 and 35 years old. They fled in an older model, two-tone sport utility vehicle that was last seen heading west on Ashby Avenue, police said.

The city is offering a $15,000 reward, and Bay Area Crime Stoppers is offering a $2,000 reward. Anyone with information is asked to call homicide investigators at (510) 981-5741 or Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
