2 Arrested In San Francisco SoMa Shooting, Standoff

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – Police on Friday identified the two men arrested for allegedly firing shots from a building in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood late Thursday night.

Gary Gray and Zayah Pettittwood, both 32, were arrested in connection with the shooting, which was reported shortly after 11 p.m. in the 400 block of Ninth Street between Harrison and Bryant streets.

As officers arrived, they heard multiple gunshots fired and set up a perimeter around the block.

The Police Department’s SWAT team responded and by 1:15 a.m., two suspects came out to the street and were taken into custody.

Gray and Pettittwood, both San Francisco residents, were booked into county jail on suspicion of negligent discharging of a firearm, police said.

KCBS’ Janice Wright Reports:

Gray was also arrested for an outstanding warrant related to the rear taillight of his car being out, according to police.

Police also recovered a gun at the scene, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

No one was struck by the gunfire, which prompted the closure of surrounding streets into the early morning hours.

    For many years, we hoped the South of Market area was improving, and some parts of it have gotten better. However, now we’re hearing that the SFPD doesn’t want to open the planned substation on Sixth Street because they don’t believe it will help. Maybe we’ve reached the limit for how much the neighborhood can be cleaned up.

    Ain’t no big thang!
    Just a couple of drunks f#cking up.

    SFPD doesn’t want to open the substation because no cop in their right mind would want to sit among the stench of urine and feces. This City gives way too much to the chronic drug users and drunks.
