The brother of a man killed in a recent shooting that involved San Francisco police in the city’s Bayview district has been arrested in connection with a murder in Seattle, police said today.
Ondrell Harding, 21, was arrested Tuesday night south of Seattle as a suspect in the beating death of a 50-year-old man in Seattle on Saturday, Seattle police Detective Mark Jamieson said.
He has been booked into King County Jail and is being held without bail.
Ondrell Harding is the older brother of 19-year-old Kenneth Harding, who died after being shot while running from police who were conducting a San Francisco Municipal Railway fare check in the Bayview District on July 16.
Police said Kenneth Harding fired at officers and they returned fire. An autopsy later determined that the bullet that killed him did not come from a police gun, and police said he might have shot himself.
