As SFist reported on Friday, at approximately 10 p.m. that night near Page and Laguna Streets, four men were shot and killed inside a stolen vehicle in an incidence of what appears to be gang-related violence. Some are describing the quadruple homicide as a drive-by.
Police Chief Greg Suhr has called for more police patrols in the area, with Officer Albie Esparza saying, "The police department believes there is no threat to public safety in the neighborhood... additional police resources have been assigned to the area to address any potential for further violence."
Some of the approximately 15 shots fired flew through nearby homes, with one reportedly lodging in a refrigerator:
