Three Arrested In Shooting That Prompted Elementary School Lockdown

Three people were arrested after an injury shooting in San Francisco’s Bayview District Thursday afternoon that prompted a lockdown at a nearby elementary school, according to a police spokesman.

The shooting was reported at 1:40 p.m. at Hawes Street and Gilman Avenue.

The victim, a 28-year-old man, was sitting in a car near the intersection when three suspects ran up to him and shot at the car, according to police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza.

The victim was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to his lower back. He is expected to survive his injures, Esparza said.

The suspects got into a silver car and fled. Officers spotted the vehicle on Griffith Street and Jamestown Avenue and chased after the car until the driver stopped in the 900 block of Jamestown Avenue.

Maurice Allen, 29, of Oakland, was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, conspiracy and a felony parole violation, according to Esparza.

Kadeja Theresa Kidwell, 20, of San Francisco, was booked on the same charges.

A third suspect, Dante McGee, 24, of San Francisco, was arrested on assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy charges.
All three were booked at San Francisco County Jail and remain in custody this morning, according to Esparza.

Police recovered guns allegedly used in the shooting, Esparza said.

After the shooting was reported, Bret Harte Elementary School, located at 1035 Gilman Ave., was placed on lockdown until about 3 p.m., according to police and school district officials.

Students, teachers and staff on campus were unharmed during the lockdown, officials said.
