"Help me. I've been shot," cried a Tenderloin hotel desk clerk who received life-threatening injuries after getting shot before 2:30 a.m. this morning.

James Talley, 20, and London Shaw, 19, of San Francisco, along with two others minors, were arrested today in connection with the robbery and shooting in the Tenderloin. One of the suspects, according to Bay City News, "was carrying a gun and wearing a black shirt with a white skeleton print." How festive -- getting into the spirit of the season before attempted murder.

The four hoodlums were charged with robbery, aggravated assault, and resisting arrest. No update yet on the condition of the gunshot victim.
