Sunset Shooting Victim Knew His Attacker, Police Say

Categories: Crime
A man peppered with gunfire Saturday night as he sat in his car was not the victim of a haphazard shooting, police told SF Weekly.

A 27-year-old Caucasian was hit with multiple shots in front of his residence in the 500 block of Noriega late Saturday, and forced into overnight surgery. "The suspect is known in this case," said police spokesman Albie Esparza. "It was not a random shooting." The alleged shooter is also described as a 27-year-old white man. A second suspect, who may or may not be an accomplice, is also believed to be a twentysomething Caucasian.

Some manner of verbal altercation between the suspect and the victim precipitated the weekend shooting in the Sunset, not far from Grand View Park. How long the men have known each other is not yet known.
