San Francisco Records Another Mass Shooting; 10-Year-Old Girl Among Injured

Sunday evening, a car-to-car shootout along SF’s Embarcadero resulted in at least six injuries — which included victims as young as 10 years old.

In just a little over a week after SF’s largest mass shooting in nearly 30 years, gunfire erupted at Fisherman’s Wharf Sunday evening, leaving at least six injured.

A little after 6:45 p.m. Sunday, a pair of shootings were reported along the Embarcadero, occurring at about 6:48 p.m. near Beach and Stockton streets, not far from Pier 39. Initial police reports describe a two-car shootout that saw the vehicle chasing the other down busy Fisherman’s Wharf before the scene ended near Howard Street.

Initially, it was assumed four individuals were injured as a result of the gun violence, but the number was later increased to six people — one of whom was a 10-year-old girl who was struck by one of the reckless vehicles. 

SFPD says two vehicles were chasing each other down The Embarcadero. The rolling gun battle between two shooters ultimately ended near Howard Street.

KRON4 notes that six people were injured during the rolling gun shooting; the aforenoted 10-year-old girl and another 16-year-old were struck by cars walking across the street with their bicycles; at least three other passersby were injured by glass from the gunshots; two individuals — presumably those involved directly in the shootout — sustained gunshot wounds with one suffering life-threatening injuries; all victims were transported to nearby hospitals.

SFPD Police Chief Bill Scott dubbed the shooting an “isolated” incident in a press conference Sunday night. Per police, one of the vehicles police were looking for at the time was a white sedan; a black SUV was also believed to be involved in the shooting and has since been found. 

City Supervisor Aaron Peskin, whose jurisdiction contains Fisherman’s Wharf, shared Sunday that two people in relation to the mass shooting have been detained, both of whom are from Pittsburg 

“The message is clear: you cannot, and will not come to this city and commit these types of acts, and walk away from here and get away with it. We will find you,” Scott said regarding news of the arrest. “We will find you and you will go to jail. ”

San Francisco’s Father’s Day mass shooting came in tandem with a weekend defined by gun violence across the United States; Saturday and Sunday saw dozens of people in the county injured by gun violence and six collective fatalities.

Anyone with video evidence or information about the mass shooting is asked to contact the police tip line at (415) 575-4444. And tips can be left anonymous if desired.
