90th slaying moves city closer to decade high

Two 21-year-old men were killed and another injured in two separate shootings in the Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood over the weekend after a 17-day homicide break in The City’s unusually bloody year.

Christian Evans, of San Francisco, became the 90th person killed in The City this year, already the second highest total since 1996, police said.

Evans was shot at the intersection of West Point and Middle Point roads around 3 a.m. Saturday, police said.

The slaying comes one day after Sir Marcus Bibbs, 21, of San Francisco, was gunned down alongside his friend at 7:55 a.m. Friday near La Salle Avenue and Hilltop Park, police said.

Two young black men in dark clothing shot Bibbs’ friend, who survived the attack, on Garlington Court, police said.

Bibbs then ran away on Garlington toward La Salle but the attackers shot him at the intersection, police said. Bibbs later died at San Francisco General Hospital.

No arrests were made as of Sunday evening in either killing.

The 90 homicides are the most since 96 were killed in The City in 2005. That year was the deadliest since 104 people were killed in 1995.
