A 22-year-old Twitter employee walking home from Dolores Park on Friday evening was struck by a bullet, possibly in crossfire during a drive-by shooting, and has now died.*
Courtney Brousseau had just tweeted about eating a burrito in the park and was reportedly headed home for a virtual game night and teleconference with friends when he was caught in a "fusillade" of bullets near the intersection of 14th and Guerrero, according to the Chronicle. Some 50 to 60 bullets were heard in the exchange, and it's not clear how many gunmen were involved.
The tweet was published at 8:17 p.m., and the shooting occurred at 8:22 p.m.

A 17-year-old boy was also reportedly injured in the shooting.
As of Monday evening, Brousseau sadly succumbed to his injuries at Zuckerberg SF General, as KPIX reported.
Brousseau took a job as a product manager at Twitter not long after graduating from UC Berkeley in 2019. He was active in transit advocacy in the city, and he started a social group called Gay for Transit.
He was also friends with BART board member Janice Li, and in this Twitter exchange from last fall, you can see them discussing a Gay for Transit meetup.
Here, BART's Twitter account expressed condolences on Tuesday.
The SFPD say that the suspects are described as "two men in their 20s" who exited a vehicle before firing shots. No arrests have been made.
