2 Shot, Killed During Daytime Brawl In SF’s Visitation Valley

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – Two people were killed in a shooting in San Francisco’s Visitacion Valley neighborhood Monday afternoon, police said.

Police received word of a fight in progress in the first block of Burr Avenue, near Argonaut Avenue, at 1:12 p.m., police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

A minute later, dispatchers began getting reports that two people had been shot, he said.

KCBS’ Jeffrey Schaub Reports:

The suspects, two males wearing hoodies, ran from the scene, Esparza said.

The men were taken to a local hospital, where they died of their wounds. Their names have not been released.

Esparza said homicide investigators are canvassing the neighborhood, but so far police only have what he termed “vague descriptions” of suspects.

A large “hostile crowd” gathered in the street after the shooting, but Esparza said around 1:30 p.m. that it appeared things had calmed down.

Police have not determined if the shooting was gang-related, but members of the department’s gang task force are involved in the investigation.
