SAN FRANCISCO—One man died and two others were injured during a shooting at a San Francisco intersection on Friday, Nov. 25. The shooting took place in the residential SF Western Addition area sometime before 11:00 a.m.

Officer Gisele Talkoff—a San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) spokesperson states that gunfire was engaged at the intersection of Turk and Scott streets. Officers arrived to the scene where they found two male victims on the street suffering gunshot wounds—one with life-threatening injures and one deceased, according to police. The victim with life-threatening injuries was taken to a nearby hospital.


The shooter involved is described as a 40-50-year-old man and was last seen fleeing east on Turk Street. The motive behind the shooting has not yet been confirmed, according to SF police.

One neighbor, Rob Schone, 24, described a taped-off crime scene and bullet holes in his next-door neighbor’s house when he returned home just after 12:00 p.m.  Other neighbors claimed that shootings are a regular occurrence for the area. David Spires, 51,  told the San Francisco Chronicle, “it’s a jungle here in my neighborhood.”
