A San Francisco couple is accused of allegedly tracking an alleged pimp across California before finally hunting him down and killing him.
Police say the couple, whose teenage daughter was allegedly being pimped by a 22-year old Compton man, shot him to death near Candlestick Park.
Attorneys for Barry Gilton and his longtime girlfriend, Lupe Mercado admit the couple tried to rescue their 17-year old daughter from Calvin Sneed, but say they didn’t kill him.
On June 4, Sneed was in San Francisco, driving his Toyota Camry at 2 a.m., when someone shot him with a .40-caliber handgun. Sneed, an alleged member of the Nutty Block Crips, crashed into a parked car and died a short time later at San Francisco General Hospital.
Authorities believe the pair were also responsible for a shooting last month when someone fired into Sneed’s car in North Hollywood. Gilton and Mercado face charges of murder, conspiracy to commit murder and one count of discharging a firearm at an occupied vehicle.
Gilton was also charged with possession of a firearm as a felon. Both are being held on $2 million bail.
