Feds charge Bay Area man with possessing bullets that killed wife

SAN FRANCISCO — A city resident who allegedly shot and killed his wife in self-defense last year is facing 10 years in federal prison for possessing the bullets that killed her, court records show.

Omar Pope, 44, is charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm, based on a May 14 arrest, and one count of being a felon in possession of ammunition. The ammunition charge stems from an incident last December when Pope allegedly killed his wife during an argument at their San Francisco home.

Jeris Woodson-Pope, 40, was shot and killed Dec. 12, 2021 inside a home on the 100 block of Dakota Street in San Francisco. Police said at the time that a 43-year-old man was shot and wounded, but survived.

Omar Pope was never charged with killing his wife, but now federal prosecutors have included the ammunition charge in a two-count felony indictment filed July 21. A court document filed Monday by the U.S. Attorney’s office says the ammunition charge is based on “Pope’s possession of ammunition found inside a gun that was used to shoot and kill Pope’s wife” in the December incident.

Pope was also allegedly found in possession of a stolen pistol after San Francisco police searched a white tiger backpack in his possession and discovered the weapon, according to the criminal complaint. Police claim they were allowed to search the backpack without a warrant because Pope was on probation. Pope allegedly admitted possession of the gun, and authorities have since linked it to a September 2021 shooting, court records show.
