Police arrest San Francisco filmmaker in homicide

Authorities say a San Francisco filmmaker has been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of a man Monday.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that police arrested 48-year-old Kevin Joseph Epps on suspicion of homicide and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Authorities say San Francisco police officers who responded to a home Monday afternoon found a man in his 40s suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. The victim, who was not identified, was pronounced dead at the scene.

A motive in the shooting was not yet known.

Epps is best known for his 2001 movie "Straight Outta Hunters Point," which explored the devastation of the San Francisco neighborhood where he was raised. He made a second movie, "Straight Outta Hunters Point 2" in 2014.

Epps was being held without bail.
