SAN FRANCISCO—At around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 28, a passerby found the body of an unidentified man at the bottom of a 30-foot cliff around the Bay shoreline.
The man’s family identified him as one of the victims of the July 27 shooting in the 300 block of Point San Bruno Boulevard.
According to reports, the victim was involved in a car chase prior to his death. Authorities say that the victim and two others were chased to Point San Bruno, a dead-end street in the industrial area of South San Francisco, by two or three armed suspects a little after 10 p.m. When the three victims arrived at the dead end, they fled from their pursuers on foot. One of the two or three armed suspects exited their vehicle, described as a silver, newer model SUV, and began firing shots.
Police responded to a report of shooting in the area. At the time, police did not believe anyone had been injured in the altercation. The victim’s exact cause of death is still unclear.
Approximately 12 hours after the shooting, at 10:35 a.m., the San Francisco Police Department located the suspects’ vehicle at the intersection of Geneva and Brookdale Avenues in the Crocker Amazon neighborhood of San Francisco. The vehicle was then towed as evidence.
The SFPD has also arrested a person of interest, whom they believe to be one of the suspects in the case. At this time, police indicate that all involved parties—both the victims and the suspects—appear to be San Francisco residents, but they have not released any of their identities. Authorities are still investigating the crime.
