Two people were injured in San Francisco Monday in a shooting that took place at an evening vigil for a man killed over the weekend at the city’s “Pink Saturday” celebration, a police spokesman said.
The shooting was reported at about 8 p.m. near the intersection of Third Street and Quesada Avenue during a neighborhood vigil being held for 19-year-old Stephen Powell, who was shot and killed Saturday during Gay Pride in the city’s Castro District, Officer Samson Chan said.
One victim, a 21-year-old man, was shot through the cheek, Chan said, and the other victim, a 20-year-old man, was shot in the leg. Both victims were taken to the hospital. Their injuries were not expected to be life threatening.
Witnesses were not forthcoming with information, Chan said, and police did not release any details regarding possible suspects early this morning.
Anyone who might have information regarding Monday’s shooting is urged to call the San Francisco Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444.
Ed Perkins, 20, of San Francisco, remains in custody charged with one count of murder in connection with Saturday’s fatal shooting of Stephen Powell.
