A male victim was fatally shot near the intersection of Eddy and Scott streets Thursday, and the SFPD chased a possible suspect vehicle across the Bay Bridge before losing it in Oakland.
The shooting happened around 7:14 p.m. in the Western Addition, as KRON4 reports, on the 1800 block of Eddy Street, and no information about the male victim has yet been released. A tipster informs SFist that the victim was 15 years old.
KTVU posted video of the crime scene in the aftermath of the shooting, and reported that police chased a suspect vehicle across the Bay Bridge. They apparently lost sight of the car, and no arrests have been made.
