Piedmont resident arrested on homicide charges

A man linked to what would become a fatal altercation with another man on a San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency bus earlier this year has been arrested after a months-long investigation.

Dominic Green, 38, of Piedmont, was taken into custody Wednesday on suspicion of manslaughter, according to San Francisco police.

On Feb. 3, officers responded to Geary and Larkin streets in San Francisco after learning that a 69-year-old victim had been involved in an altercation with another man on the bus, resulting in the victim being dragged and pushed onto the sidewalk.

The victim, later identified as San Francisco resident Henry Kemp, remained hospitalized for more than a month. He died from his injuries on March 8, police said.

The city’s Medical Examiner’s Office ruled Kemp’s death a homicide.

Green remains in custody and is being held on $300,000 bail, according to jail records.
