Arriving at the scene of the second shooting, officers located two men suffering from gunshot wounds. The victims — who were ages 49 and 54 — were taken to a nearby hospital; one victim has since succumbed to his wounds, while the other victim remains in critical condition.
In light of the recent spree of deadly shootings, SF District Attorney Chesa Boudin tweeted “I am outraged by the recent shooting death” and that his “homicide leads are already working with SFPD on the investigation.”
According to KRON4, the first homicide in this recent spree occurred near the area of Persia and Vienna in the Excelsior District Friday night; Saturday, police announced an arrest was made in relation to that killing.
Multiple agencies are assisting with the investigation into these homicides; Boudin has encouraged anyone with information related to these killings to call 415-575-4444.
