Shots were fired on San Carlos Street near 19th Street early Tuesday morning, police report. A witness had been walking on the street around 1:15 a.m. when she saw a man, about 20 years old, pull out a handgun and start shooting, though it is unclear what he was targetting.

No one was injured, and the suspect drove away in a gold Toyota Camry with a Florida license plate. Nine spent casings were located at the scene. No arrest has been made.


A short time later, at 1:30 a.m., four men estimated to be between the ages of 17 and 20 years old approached a 31-year-old man on 18th Street near Dolores Street. The group asked the man if he had any marijuana, and when the man said he didn’t, the group of young men punched him multiple times. They then took the man’s phone from his pocket and fled the scene.

The victim was transported to the hospital in non-life-threatening condition, and no arrests have been made.

Scooter Thefts

Reader Jessica “Chachi” Aguirre reports that her scooter, a 2016 metallic blue Genuine Buddy 10th anniversary edition with white wall tires and chrome mirrors, with license plate number 22H7792, was stolen from Dolores Street in front of Dolores Park Friday night. After filing a police report and posting on Craigslist about the theft, Aguirre said another Buddy scooter owner said she, too, had been the victim of a theft over the weekend, this one at 18th and Guerrero streets.


“I just wanted to see if you could get a news  story out there to warn others…I’m a working class San Franciscan & it’s a huge loss & bummer that a form of transportation was stolen from me,” Aguirre wrote. “I would hate to see anybody else get their scooter stolen & I’m hoping for the possibility of possibly finding it.”
