REDWOOD CITY, California – Police arrested two men last Tuesday in connection with the shooting of a man inside a downtown San Rafael Filipino restaurant last month.

According to police, 19-year-old Christian Fernando Moran and 20-year-old Victor Alexis Deleon, both of San Rafael, were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and conspiracy.

Moran was arrested Tuesday after questioning at the San Rafael police department.
