SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) - San Francisco police are looking
for the person or people who shot into a crowd in San Francisco
early Saturday morning, injuring two young men and a 16-year-old
Police Inspector Julian Hill said a fraternity from the East
Bay had put on a dance at the West Bay Conference Center at 1290
Fillmore St., near Eddy Street. At the time of the shooting, about
1:15 a.m., Hill said a crowd of 100 to 200 people had gathered
outside the center.
"From what we understand, the majority of the people who
were directly associated with the party had left. A lot of local
people had gathered out front. People double-parked cars, blocked
intersections, played loud music,'' Hill said.
At some point, an argument broke out between two girls, Hill
That conflict escalated until somebody fired a gun into the crowd,
hitting three people. Officers responding to the incident located
a 21-year-old man who had been shot in the back, an 18-year-old
man who had been shot in the chest, and a 16-year-old girl who
had been shot in the buttocks. Hill said the two men are in critical
but stable condition.
Police are looking for witnesses to the shooting. Anyone with
information is encouraged to call the Police Department's general
works division at (415) 553-1141 or the department's anonymous
tip line at (415) 575-4444.
