Two suspects involved in a fatal shooting that took place in San Francisco Friday night were arrested in Union City following a multi-agency manhunt, police said.

Anthony Pratt, 27, of Union City and Trumillion Ballard, 24, of San Francisco were detained by police in Union City on Saturday afternoon after local police pulled over a vehicle registered to an individual wanted for questioning.

San Francisco homicide detectives questioned both men regarding the fatal shooting of Gary Smith, which took place on the first block of Sixth Street at 11:10 p.m. on Friday.

Officers found Smith on the sidewalk suffering from a gunshot wound and he was pronounced dead at the scene, according to San Francisco police.

Both Pratt and Ballard were arrested on suspicion of murder and booked at San Francisco County Jail.

The homicide remains under investigation.

The arrests caused a commotion in Union City's Old Alvarado district as the fleeing suspect led police on an hours-long manhut.

According to the Union City Police Department, the wanted vehicle was pulled over on Smith Street near Bronco Billy’s Pizza Palace when one of the passengers attempted to flee.

The San Francisco Police Department, who are handling the case, Fremont Police Department and a California Highway Patrol helicopter also responded to the scene.

The suspect who fled was eventually caught by a Fremont canine. He was found hiding in a massage parlor that was closed near Marsten Avenue and Brooklyn Street, just off Union City Boulevard.
