    Brazen to commit a hot prowl in the early evening in a crowded neighborhood (block away from the Noriega shopping district). Sounds like they knew there might be money in the home. If you bring firepower, you are expecting to run into someone.

    What house has NINE people in it? Ok, not that unusual in the Sunset and Richmond, but still. Sounds like something else was going on.

    Plus, just saw the Chron report that “The house has surveillance cameras on the outside.”

    Hmmm.
