San Francisco police say they have arrested 20-year-old Derrick Hunter and a

14-year-old boy on suspicion of fatally shooting JaQuan Rice outside a Muni stop earlier this week.

On June 24 at about 1 p.m., Rice, 19, was sitting with a 17-year-old girl at the Middle Point and West Point roads Muni stop when they were shot. Both were taken to a local hospital where Rice died from a gunshot wound. The girl remains in critical condition, according to police.
