Kids Witness To Home Invasion, Triple Shooting

Two children were inside a residence during a home invasion robbery and shooting in San Francisco’s Bayview district this morning, according to a police sergeant.

Police responded to a report of gunfire at 2:25 a.m. in the initial block of Elmira Street, just south of Industrial Street and found two men and a woman with gunshot wounds, San Francisco police Sgt. Dennis Toomer said.

The three adult victims were transported to San Francisco General Hospital, according to Toomer.

The man and woman who reside at the home are between 20 and 30 years old, Toomer said.

The female resident sustained life-threatening injuries and the male resident suffered injuries not considered to be life-threatening, according to Toomer.

The two children in the home at the time of the shooting were not harmed, but were taken to San Francisco General Hospital for observation, Toomer said.

Police believe the third person injured in the shooting may be one of the suspects. One of the residents may have been able to get a hold of the suspects’ handgun and wound him with it.

There are two suspects still outstanding and both are described as black men in their 20s, Toomer said.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call 911, the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the message.
