A woman allegedly found in possession of ecstasy tablets and a pistol was arrested Wednesday night after she drove a Bayview District shooting victim to the hospital, a police spokeswoman said today.
Jamellah Ramadan Alisuluki, a 25-year-old San Francisco resident, pulled up to San Francisco General Hospital shortly after 6 p.m. on Wednesday in a gold sedan riddled with bullet holes to drop off a man with multiple gunshot wounds, San Francisco police spokeswoman Officer Grace Gatpandan said today.
Upon arrival at the hospital’s emergency room, the 38-year-old man, who suffered gunshot wounds to the arm, leg and abdomen, received medical treatment while law enforcement officials questioned Alisuluki about the shooting, Gatpandan said.
Officers in the Bayview District located a crime scene in the 1600 block of La Salle Avenue, just east of Third Street, where they found numerous shell casings, a blue Nissan with bullet holes, and blood near the vehicle, according to police.
The shooting victim is expected to survive his injuries and police haven’t arrested any suspects in connection with the shooting, Gatpandan said.
During a search of the gold sedan that Alisuluki drove to the hospital, law enforcement officials found tablets of ecstasy and a loaded .40 caliber pistol in her purse, Gatpandan said.
Police seized the car and arrested Alisuluki, Gatpandan said.
Alisuluki was booked into county jail on suspicion of unlawful possession of narcotics while in possession of a firearm, possession of narcotics for sale and carrying a loaded firearm in public, according to Gatpandan.
Police are also investigating a shooting that occurred on the same block much earlier that same day, Gatpandan said, explaining that there is no indication yet that the two shootings are related to each other.
At about 3 a.m. on Wednesday three friends brought a 25-year-old man who suffered a gunshot wound to his leg to San Francisco General Hospital, Gatpandan said.
The victim and his friends were uncooperative with the officers’ investigation, but police were able to locate the crime scene in the 1600 block of La Salle Avenue.
The officers were able to preserve evidence from the shooting but have not made any arrests, according to Gatpandan.
Police are continuing to investigate the motive for the shootings and are urging anyone with information to call the San Francisco Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the message.
