Andre Bueno Arrested: Suspect In San Francisco Brothel Murder-Robbery Found In Las Vegas

Three years after assailants burst into a suspected San Francisco brothel, tied up nine people and shot and killed the owner, a man has been arrested in connection with the case.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Andre Bueno, 29, was arrested in Las Vegas after police discovered a warrant for his arrest during a routine traffic stop. Investigators believe Bueno may be one of the two assailants.

In 2010, two men allegedly entered the home of 44-year-old Xiao "Ben" Xiong Luo during a suspected robbery. The suspects reportedly tied up the residents inside before shooting Luo once in the chest. He was announced dead at the scene, and the suspects fled.

According to the SF Weekly, police later reported that Luo may have been running a brothel in the basement of the home. Police also later released a telephone transcription from a 911 call outside of the house that was interrupted when one of the assailants told the caller to "go in the house and don't move, don't move, be calm, shut the f*ck up."

The caller was reportedly then pulled into the house and bound with the rest of the residents, reported SF Appeal.

Investigators hope Bueno's arrest will shed light on the incident.

According to the Chronicle, Bueno was extradited to San Francisco on January 16 and booked on murder charges.
