Sunset homicide suspect ordered held on $10M bail 

A 39-year-old San Francisco man accused of fatally shooting another man Wednesday outside a Sunset District Vietnamese restaurant man was ordered held on $10 million bail Friday.

Bao Luu was arrested at the scene of the 4:30 p.m. shooting in front of the Pho Huynh Hiep 2 restaurant at 1833 Irving St., according to police.

Two officers saw the shooting and immediately arrested Luu, but were unable to revive the victim, 35-year-old Cuong Lu, also of San Francisco.

A gun believed used in the shooting was also recovered, police said.

Prosecutors have charged Luu with one count of murder with an allegation of the use of a firearm.

Luu appeared in San Francisco Superior Court on Friday morning, but his arraignment and plea on the charges was postponed until Tuesday while he awaits the appointment of an attorney from the public defender's office.

Police have not discussed a possible motive for the killing but have said the suspect and the victim knew each other, and began arguing inside the restaurant.

The argument spilled outside, where Luu allegedly drew a gun and shot Lu, police said.
