SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – The number of homicides in San Francisco this year has outpaced 2011, a problem San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee said requires a comprehensive solution.
As of Thursday morning, 67 homicides have been recorded in San Francisco, 17 more than all of 2011.
“I get a text of every homicide in the city,” Lee said, dismayed by the 67 messages he has received so far in a year when violent crime has also increased in San Jose and Oakland.
“It’s no satisfaction to me that even San Jose and Oakland are experiencing this,” he said.
