A 30-year-old victim was shot multiple times in broad daylight near an early education and neighborhood resource center on Kirkwood Avenue yesterday afternoon. It was San Francisco's third shooting yesterday and the city's 20th homicide of 2013.
The victim was shot on the 700 block of Kirkwood and taken to S.F. General Hospital around 3 p.m., where he was pronounced dead. No one else was hit in the incident and details are scarce even though it happened in the middle of the afternoon within a block of a neighborhood community center. As of yesterday evening, police were still searching the neighborhood for any witnesses.
Later yesterday evening, two men were shot in the leg around 6:30 p.m. at Larkin and Grove Streets, not far from where the official Pride festivities in Civic Center had just wrapped up. Both those men are expect to survive.
Last week, 19-year-old Jaquan Rice was shot and killed while waiting at a Muni stop in the neighborhood at West Point and Middle Point Roads. A teenage girl who was with him was also injured in that shooting, but was expected to survive. In that incident, police arrested two suspects: one 20-years-old, another 14.
