Shotwell Shooting and Other Crimes Mar Weekend

crime recapCrime-wise, it was a rough weekend for the Mission. 


Two groups exchanged words and gunfire on Saturday at around 5:30 p.m. on Shotwell, near 23rd Street. One 21-year-old man was struck by a bullet and transported to San Francisco General Hospital for a non-life-threatening wound. He was “uncooperative” with police about details in the case, according to police. No arrests have been made.

Hot prowl burglary:

Two middle-aged men woke up on Friday morning at their 17th Street home, between Sanchez and Church, and discovered their house had been rifled through, the lights had been turned on, both of their cars had been broken into and items were missing. The unidentified suspect had entered the residence after using a remote for the garage that was in one of the burglarized cars. No arrest has been made.


At around 2 a.m. on Saturday, a man was robbed at gunpoint by three suspects at a bus stop on Mission and 19th streets. After the victim gave the trio of suspects cash from his purse, two fled — but the third was arrested when police arrived at the scene.

Carjacking with a handgun:

A 30-year-old man handed over his keys at around 2:30 a.m. on Saturday after he was approached by a man with a handgun near Garfield Square on Lucky Street. The 20-something suspect demanded the victim’s car and then fled the scene in it. No arrest has been made.


A little after 1 a.m. on Monday, two men got in a fight on 16th Street between Valencia and Guerrero, and one stabbed the other with a knife. The suspect fled the scene in his white sedan. The victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Police found the suspect in his car and arrested him.

    if i was a techie , i would be careful to walk around the Mission at night with my $600 dollars iphone, wallet and credit cars.

    every weekend and every night , people also get robbed and assaulted when they get out of the bars loaded and wasted out of their minds, easy prey for the criminals cruising the neighborhood for techies with money.

    bad people come out at night, looking for victims, they even come from out of town to rob someone, it happens everyday.

    stop looking at your phone like zombies on the street.

    bad people are watching you.

    be safe.

    i wellcome the Police presence at 16th street plaza, but it should have been done years ago.

    i guess the developer and the techies bosses living in the Mission asked the Mayor to clean the neighborhood, no surprise there.

    the mayor cares more for the techies than for the people that voted for him and have lived in the city for years. somehow lots of people feel betrayed by the techie mayor .

    congratulations mayor, the city is losing the middle class people and families during your watch, thanks for showing your true colors.
