The City suffered an outbreak of violence over the weekend, as the discovery of a woman’s burned body, a series of fatal shootings and a murder-suicide left police scrambling for answers.
The badly charred body of a woman was found at 4:40 p.m. on Friday afternoon on a boat ramp at the end of Carroll Avenue by Candlestick Park, Sgt. Neville Gittens said.
The woman’s identity and reason behind her death are still under investigation, Gittens said.
Later that night, at 10:10 p.m., Daly City couple Jose Delacruz, 31, and Flor Guzman-Vasquez, 28, were shot to death in their car on the 200 block of Still Street, Gittens said.
Two children believed to belong to the couple, ages one- and five-years old, were also in the car at the time of the shooting, but were unharmed, Gittens said. They are now in the custody of child protective services.
A man was seen running from the scene, but there is not yet a suspect or motive for the crime, Gittens said.
Early Sunday brought more deaths, as 20-year-old Tony Hunt of San Francisco and Yusef Campbell, age and city of residence unknown as of Sunday, were gunned down on the sidewalk on the 400 block of Haight Street, Gittens said.
The men were standing on the sidewalk about 12:05 a.m., when a sedan pulled over alongside and an argument ensued. A man then got out of the vehicle and fired several shots, killing the two men instantly before getting back intothe car and speeding up Fillmore Street, Gittens said.
An abandoned sedan, believed to have been used in the slaying, was recovered later just blocks from the slaying and seized by police, Gittens said.
"There were a lot of witnesses that saw [the shooting], and we hope that they will come forward," Gittens said.
At about 9 a.m. Sunday, family members discovered the bodies of Stella Wu, 42, and Jason Wu, 47, in the couple’s Vienna Street home. Shots had been reportedly fired around 4 a.m., and police believe Jason Wu shot and killed his wife before killing himself in a murder-suicide, Gittens said. There were two children in the house at the time.
