Two men who were arrested following a shooting in San Francisco’s Bayview District on Saturday evening have been identified by police, who are still seeking a female suspect in the case, a police spokeswoman said today.
San Francisco residents Michael Essick and Olujimi “Charles” Mabrey, both 26 years old, were arrested following a brief vehicle and foot pursuit, according to San Francisco police spokeswoman Officer Grace Gatpandan.
The female suspect who was with Essick and Mabrey managed to evade officers and remains at large today, police said.
Gatpandan said the female suspect is described as a black woman between 20 and 25 years of age. She was last seen wearing a blue sweatshirt and dark pants.
Officers received a report of shots fired in the area of Ingalls Street and Revere Avenue at about 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Gatpandan said.
Upon arrival, officers recovered multiple bullet casings and found a vehicle that had been struck by gunfire, but no injuries were reported, according to Gatpandan.
Officers soon located a suspect vehicle in the vicinity of Keith Street and Oakdale Avenue, according to Gatpandan.
All three occupants bailed from the vehicle. Police officers were able to detain the men, but not the woman, Gatpandan said.
Essick and Mabrey were booked into jail on suspicion of weapons offenses, resisting arrest and gang enhancements, she said.
The motive for the shooting remains under investigation.
