Stephen Guillermo returned to his apartment building Saturday night, but accidentally went to the wrong apartment.
The tenant who lived there shot and killed Stephen.
“This is a situation where shoot first, ask questions later really shouldn’t apply,” said Emil Guillermo.
Guillermo writes a weekly blog for the Asian American Legal Defensed & Education Fund as well as for a number of publications. He has also written a series of stories about San Francisco Giant and two-time Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum for AsAmNews.
Guillermo sent out this tweet about his cousin this evening.
