Late on Sunday night, a 23-year-old man was shot and killed, and four others were injured, in the North Beach district of San Francisco. According to a tweet by SFPD’s Deputy Chief of Investigations Raj Vaswani, the incident occurred around 11 p.m. nearby the intersection of Columbus and Broadway, not far from the renowned Condor Club.
“Don’t have condition of the 4 being treated,” he tweeted Sunday night. “No additional information will be going out on this tonight or early morning by Investigations, we will be working on this through the night into tomorrow.”
Police officers could be seen swarming the scene of the incident on video footage taken at the scene. The street was littered with discarded pistols and ammunition casings, and a body sheet lay on the ground nearby. Investigators, according to the police, do not believe the shooting was random and say it was an isolated event.
Authorities have not made any arrests and have not offered a description of the culprit in the fatal shooting. There was significant uncertainty over how many people were hurt on Monday morning. Around 8 a.m. on Monday, San Francisco police tweeted that the correct number of injured was three.
The victim was a 23-year-old male from Solano County, and he was pronounced dead at the hospital. The victim’s identity has not been made public.
“There were 3 other shooting victims who are expected to survive,” police tweeted. “Investigators believe this was not a random attack.” However, an update was sent out later that said police had discovered two more shooting victims nearby; both were guys aged 24 from Sacramento County.

The two victims’ injuries were deemed to be non-life threatening, so they were taken to a local hospital. A boy, 22, from Alameda County, and a female, 20, from Contra Costa County, were both shot and taken to the hospital before police arrived, according to the release. Those victims also sustained injuries, although they were not life-threatening.
Chris Hall was staying nearby while on a trip to San Francisco from England. Ten or twelve gunshots rang out as he was in his room. “I looked out my window and there was a guy being dragged to a car,” he said.
“The car drove off. A guy was getting dragged into the convenience store. He’s dead. A girl ran down here (the street) she was shot as well.” Hall served in the armed forces. The gunfire didn’t faze him at all. “It is what it is. It happens here,” he said.
“As long as it doesn’t happen to me, my family, my friends. I don’t know what the answer is. It’s not my place. It’s not my country.” If you have any information, please contact the San Francisco Police Department’s 24-hour Tip Line at 1-1-415-575-4444 or Text a Tip to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the subject line.
