One person was killed and two were injured in a shooting that took place Saturday on Mission Street between 17th and 18th streets, police said.
Patrol offers heard gunfire and responded to the scene at around 8:45 p.m., according to SFPD spokesman Officer Joseph Tomlinson.
When the officers arrived, he said, they found three gunshot victims. One was declared dead at the scene, and the other two — one with life-threatening injuries and the other with non-life-threatening injuries — were transported to the hospital.
The suspects are still outstanding, Tomlinson said. He could not provide further information on the identities of the victims.
One witness was working a nearby bar when she heard around seven “pops.” “I thought they were fireworks,” she said.
A resident of an SRO across the street said she recognized the victim. “I don’t know his name, but he was a nice guy,” she said.
She said he didn’t live at the hotel, but frequently visited Mission Street. “He would come through with his daughter,” she said.
At around 9:45 p.m., police had blocked off Mission Street between 17th Street and Sycamore Alley. A body was covered up in front of the Footwear City Express shoe store, and around seven evidence markers were strewn in front of the One Dollar Store.
Over in front of the Sycamore bar, a minivan sat with a bullet hole on its windshield. Its back window was shattered.
This is the second fatal shooting in the Mission in two weeks. Last Friday, one man was fatally shot and another was injured on 24th and Harrison Streets.
Update 7/2/18: As of Monday, the Medical Examiner has not yet released the name of the person who died. On Sunday morning, an altar was set up near the scene. “Rest in Peace, Marcos,” a sign read. There were pictures of a man and his dog, and a pair of sunglasses hung from the sign.
