A shooting early Monday morning left one man dead on Capp Street near 21st Street, according to police.
The man was identified as 25-year-old Tony Patton, Jr., a San Francisco resident.
The San Francisco Police Department reported this morning that any suspects are currently “unknown.” Police spokeswoman Giselle Linnane said police arrived on scene at 1:20 a.m. after receiving a call about a shooting in the area. They found Patton who was later pronounced dead. Linnane said no more details could be provided, as the case is under investigation.
A witness described hearing a barrage of shots Sunday evening and later seeing a body bag being carted off.
According to a one man, who didn’t wish to be named, Patton was a regular customer at the All Seasons Market on Capp Street. The witness saw Patton walk in to buy ice cream, chips and a soda before returning to the street. The victim crossed the street and was standing in front of a church-owned structure at 3365 19th St. when he was shot at 1:17 a.m.
A resident living on Capp Street, who also didn’t want to be identified, said she heard six shots in rapid succession, followed by six more shots. The resident heard lots of screaming before going outside to check the scene.
Police responded within two minutes, area residents said.
Jonas Cabrera, who works at the Lucky Cuckoo on 19th Street, just across the street from the shooting site, said he’s seen plenty of unsettling things in his two years at this job. He noted there was another shooting here some six months ago.
“It’s not surprising,” he said. “It’s 19th Street, man.”
