The fatal incident came only 12 hours after Mayor London Breed announced her plan to crack down on crime, particularly in the nearby Tenderloin.
“It’s time the reign of criminals who are destroying our city, it is time for it to come to an end,” she said. “And it comes to an end when we take the steps to more aggressive with law enforcement. More aggressive with the changes in our policies and less tolerate of all the bullshit that has destroyed our city.”
