SAN FRANCISCO — Authorities have arrested a seventh suspect wanted in the killing of a German tourist near San Francisco's Union Square in 2010.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/1cuEkC2) that 21-year-old Devante Laws was arrested Friday in Hayward by the U.S. Marshals Service.
Investigators have been looking for the suspected gang member since the August 2010 killing of 50-year-old Mechthild Schroer, who was vacationing in San Francisco with her husband to celebrate her birthday and the couple's 25th wedding anniversary.
Six other suspected gang members have already been charged in the case. The fatal shots were fired outside a club during a brawl.
Schroer, an elementary school rector from Hanover, German, was killed while she and her husband, Stefan, were looking for a place to eat.
