Two Arrests Made In SF Market Street Shooting

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — Police say two teens are under arrest after five people were shot and injured in San Francisco.

Police spokesman Lt. Troy Dangerfield says an 18-year-old man and 16-year-old boy are in custody on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and gang charges.

Dangerfield says four of the victims of the Saturday shooting were unintended. They include a 74-year-old local man, a 45-year-old tourist from England, a 22-year-old man from Santa Cruz and a 17-year-old boy from El Cerrito.

KCBS’ Mark Seelig Reports:

No information was released about the fifth victim, believed to be the target. All are expected to survive.

The shooting was blocks from Saturday’s just-ended Gay Pride events at the Civic Center, but police say no one involved in the shooting had any connection to the festivities.

    When is SF going to get serious about cleaning up mid market?

    Or is that trampling on some disenfranchised homeless person’s rights?

    Another tourist shot. That’s got to be great for tourism. Exactly why I don’t live in the city any more.

      We’re not missing you, either.

      Part of the problem is that some group has purchased several of the buildings on mid-Market, and they’re leaving the buildings run-down in order to bring prices down on the surrounding buildings. When prices go down, the group will buy the remaining buildings. Then they will clean-up the neighborhood. Until then, the group of investors intends to let the area continue looking like trash. Get it?

      Is being a minority person an excuse to commit crime, does being black give them a pass. The world racist is a buzz word, kind of get out of jail and sue everybody excuse. Here are the real facts, racism is BAD, using race as an excuse for not being sucessful or being evil is worse. There more people of color in California prisons then so called white people, that is a fact. They didn’t get there by being innocent. Acts of violence by gangs on the streets is reaching epic proportions, but we don’t target them because they are minorites and somebody may get their feelings hurt.

    Gangs are so stupid. Animals.


    We have the toughest most restrictive gun laws in the United States. You have to be 21 in order to purchase and possess a handgun yet these two kids were 18 and 16. I don’t understand, you mean that people disobey the laws. YOU CAN WRITE ALL THE LAWS YOU WANT IF THERE ARE NO CONSEQUENCES TO BREAKING THEM THEY ARE MEANINGLESS. No money for prisons, cuts in public service, liberal policies toward criminals. We have been spending billions on feel good programs that don’t work, they sound good but are ineffective. You are seeing the end result. The strong and evil will always prey on the weak and good. Yesterday some commentor on this site could not believe this happened during the Pride events, like it was sacred and crime goes away. Wake up people.

    We’ve spent decades on feel-good programs to encourage and pay for the laziest, stupidist, most criminally inclined to reproduce themselves ad infinitum and now we’re SHOCKED when our homegrown visigoths erupt in brain-dead criminal behavior?

    Oh PLEASE!!!

  • Psychopathy abounds

    You can’t fix stupid. Darwin-ism at it’s finest.

    To bad they all can be at the same place at the same time and wipe each other out completely.

    It would save a lot of time…

  • JaneQPublic

    Good police work – making the arrests so quickly after the crime. Seriously!

    I just hope the ones arrested ARE the perps AND they should BOTH be charged as adults for ATTEMPTED MURDER.
