A suspect in the Valentine's morning shooting that left two men dead and another injured has been arrested, according to SFPD spokesperson Grace Gatpandan.

The shooting took place shortly after 2am on Sunday morning, at the Twin Peaks overlook. The victims have been identified as Julio Peraza (21) and Rene Mora (19) of Santa Rosa, and another victim, 18, was left critically injured.
