Surveillance video released of suspects in high school teacher’s fatal shooting (VIDEO)

Authorities in San Francisco released surveillance video Wednesday in hopes of identifying three persons of interest in the June 18 shooting death of a popular Oakland high school teacher.

The shooting happened outside of a nightclub after one of the suspects began harassing women with the teacher’s group. The teacher, 31-year-old Carlo Tateo, asked the suspect to move along and leave the ladies alone.

San Francisco police Cmdr. Greg McEachern said, at that point, without any provocation, one of the suspects pulled out a gun and shot Tateo dead. The suspects then got into a vehicle and drove away.

“Every homicide is tragic. But this homicide is senseless,” McEachern said.

Likewise, Tateo’s mother, Sonja Tateo, said she wants the suspect caught so the community is safer.

“What I would like to ask the public is to take close looks at the photos and if you recognize someone please make a phone call. We don’t want this to happen to another family,” said Sonja Tateo.
