SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) - Two people are dead this morning
after being gunned down in front of their two young children in
San Francisco's Mission Terrace neighborhood Friday night, police
Police spokesman Neville Gittens said that officers responding
to reports of shots fired in the area of Badger Street at around
10:10 p.m. located a man and woman dead inside a car on the 200
block of Still Street.
The two victims are believed to be the parents of two children
found in the car, ages four and nine months, Gittens said. Both
children were unharmed and are in the custody of the city's child
protective services this morning.
Gittens said police do not believe the murders occurred randomly
and he suggested the victims were likely familiar with their assailant.
While police have no motive or suspect for the shooting, witnesses
reported seeing one man fleeing from the scene on foot after the
shots were fired, Gittens said.
Police are asking anyone with information about the shooting
to contact the Police Department's anonymous tip line at (415)
