Bayview sees fourth killing in less than a week

A shooting in broad daylight Monday morning led to the fourth killing in less than a week in the Bayview district.

The latest victim, described by police as a 17-year-old Hispanic male, had not been identified by the Medical Examiner’s Office as of Monday evening. Police said he was found lying on the street about 11 a.m. near the intersection of Kirkwood Avenue and Newhall Street, less than a block away from a T-Third Muni stop.

Police are looking for a black man in his late teens, according to police spokesman Sgt. Steve Mannina, who said that several people called police when the shots were fired. He added that the suspect shot the teenager from a distance and then walked up to him and continued to fire at him while he was on the ground.

Police are still investigating three other slayings that occurred in the Bayview district in the last week. On Jan. 29, a passing car opened fire on 36-year-old Tony Ia in the 1000 block of Fitzgerald Avenue. He died hours later at San Francisco General Hospital.

Also, early Sunday, two men were gunned down as they sat in a gray 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix. Demarco Vaughn, 27, and James Gibson, 29, died of gunshot wounds around 1:40 a.m. Police Sgt. Neville Gittens said Monday that one of the victims lived at a home in the Loehn Street cul-de-sac where the shooting occurred.

The latest killing brings The City’s homicide count to 11 for the year.
