SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS RADIO) - Officials from the San Francisco police and the family of a murdered 24-year-old on Wednesday pleaded with the public to help identify the suspect in the unsolved 2016 slaying. 

To revive the investigation into Mitchell Warren's shooting in the Tenderloin, SFPD cops released an image of the alleged killer taken from a street camera. Police have images of an African-American man riding on a bicycle's handlebars, but their efforts to identify him have not borne fruit. 

At the time of his death, Warren was an apprentice to be an electrician. 

With what would have been his 26th birthday just days away, his relatives discussed the difficulty of his death. 

"The hardest thing I ever had to do was call my daughters and tell them that their baby brother had been shot and killed," said Larry Warren, the victim's father. 

Based on the photo and other surveillance evidence, police believe the suspect is in his late 20s or early 30s, stands six feet tall and weighs about 170 to 190 pounds. 

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the San Francisco Police Department.
