Why can't people stop killing each other?
Medical authorities confirmed that 27-year-old Tony Harper was killed in a double shooting in the city's Bayview neighborhood on Friday night.

Police say a second man was also shot; he remains at San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

According to police, the two men were at the corner of Salinas Avenue and Bayshore Boulevard at 11:30 p.m. near Candlestick Park when they were shot.

Police say they have made no arrests nor do they have suspect information to give us at this time.
