A man accused of killing a 32-year-old woman on San Francisco’s waterfront used a gun stolen from a federal agent’s car, sources close to the investigation told the SFGate.com.
The gun was a .40-caliber pistol, but it did not appear to be the agent’s official gun.
Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez was charged in the murder of Kathryn Steinle.
The suspect was in the U.S. without documentation and was deported five times to his native Mexico.
The gun was stolen in a downtown robbery.
It wasn’t immediately clear which agency the agent worked for.
