(01-09) 12:31 PST SAN FRANCISCO - San Francisco police arrested two people in connection with the shooting deaths of two men in the city over the past month, authorities said today.
Mario Hollister, 23, of Richmond was arrested Tuesday in Hercules in connection with the shooting death early Sunday of Clarence Corbin, police said. Corbin, 34, of Antioch was shot while trying to break up a fight outside the Jelly's Dance Cafe nightclub on Terry Francois Boulevard in Mission Bay, police said.
A 17-year-old boy was arrested Saturday in connection with the shooting death of 24-year-old Dewayne Larry, who was killed Dec. 17 on the 100 block of Kiska Road in the Bayview district. Police said the suspect, whose name was not released because of his age, shot Larry after the two got into a fight.
Also, "A state appeals court refused today to revive a ban on handgun possession in San Francisco, saying the measure that city voters approved in November 2005 conflicts with state law."
