Update: as soon as I hit “publish,” I thought what the fuck am I thinking? Mission and 7th isn’t Mission, it’s SoMa! I’m not even hungover, so I have no excuse! Forgive me.

Adding fodder for our Mission safety discussion, last night, two men the SFPD describes at white males robbed a store at at 7th and Mission. SFPD says that one of the men was wielding a handgun, which presumably enabled him to rob three store employees of currency from cash register. No one was injured, and no arrests have been made. The anonymous Mission Southern Station tipline is 552-4558 552-4901 if you have any info on this crime.
