SAN FRANCISCO—On May 10, officers with the San Francisco Police Department answered a call of a potential shooting and stabbing on the 300 block of the Embarcadero. Upon arriving at the scene, officers found a female victim with a non-life threatening stab wound to the hand and a male victim with a life-threatening gunshot wound to the stomach. Both victims were rushed to the hospital by medical personnel after officers arrived to investigate.
Authorities discovered that an altercation transpired between the two victims and the male victim’s ex-girlfriend, 28-year-old Leola Isaacson, which led to her stabbing the female victim in the hand which authorities described as an “edged weapon” in a press release on May 24. A witness from the scene later stated that an unknown man and possible aide to Isaacson, 39-year-old Nick Shaw, shot the male victim in the stomach before fleeing the scene.
According to the SFPD, Isaacson was detained on May 11 at San Francisco General Hospital and arrested at San Francisco County Jail for assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Five days later on May 16 around 7:30 p.m., Shaw was identified hiding under the Bryant Street overpass near Federal and Beale Streets. Shaw was taken into custody without incident or injury and was charged with attempted murder, felon in possession of a firearm, assault with a deadly weapon, and resisting arrest. The motivation for Shawn’s assistance in the attack has not yet been disclosed.
“Although an arrest has been made, investigators are asking anyone with information about this case to contact the San Francisco Police 24 hour tip line at 1-415-575-4444 or text-a-tip to TIP411 and begin the message with SFPD. You may remain anonymous,” said the SFPD in a news release.
