SFPD Finds Video Allegedly Revealing Conspiracy in Murder of SoCal Pimp
The DA condemned Mercado and Barry Gilton, who claim their 17-year-old daughter was being pimped out by Sneed
in Los Angeles, for taking the law into their own hands rather than calling on the cops when they learned that Sneed was in San Francisco on June 4 -- the day he was killed.
"Revenge outside of the law is not justice within in," Gascón told reporters at a press conference today. "The parents did not turn to the San Francisco Police Department, but instead turned to other people and conspired to commit a murder."
Sneed was shot in the head at the intersection of Meade and Le Conte avenues at about 2 a.m. while driving a Toyoto Camry, which then crashed into a parked vehicle.
Prosecutors say Barry Gilton pulled the trigger, killing Sneed.
All four suspects are held in jail in lieu of $2 million bail. They will appear in court together on July 12.
