During the World Series game last night, two men were shot and one of them killed in a shooting near the intersection of 24th and Harrison Streets. The incident happened around 6 p.m., and marks the third homicide in the Mission in the last eight days. Several hours later, an SFPD officer was shot at near 23rd and Bryant, but he escaped without injury.
The double shooting occurred after two suspects approached the two victims on the street. One man, 19-year-old Cesar Bermudez, died at the scene, and the other was transported to SF General with a gunshot wound to the foot. The police subsequently shut down the block of Mission Street between 24th and 25th where they found a cellphone and possibly other evidence connected to the shooting in the street. The gang task force is still investigating, as Mission Local reports, and it's unclear if the SFPD has anyone in custody.
Then around 1:30 a.m. this morning, as reported on the Appeal, a police officer was shot at multiple times from a moving vehicle containing three suspects. The officer was not hit, and he gave chase, and three men ran out of the vehicle at 23rd and Bryant. The officer was able to apprehend one of the possible suspects, and the other two remain at large.
These incidents follow on the murders of Caesar Chuc, who succumbed to injuries from that 20-person brawl last week, and the man killed near 16th and Valencia on Saturday, who's been identified as 19-year-old Jose Escobar.
