Club bouncer fatally shot after his shift

Police are investigating the death of a San Francisco man who was fatally shot by two suspects in a fleeing car early Friday morning.

At approximately 2:15 a.m., Germane Harris, 33, was standing on the corner of Harrison and 12th streets when the two suspects, driving a newer-model silver Volkswagen Jetta, pulled up and shot him, according to police Sgt. Wilfred Williams.

Two women who were near Harris at the time of the killing were not injured, Williams said.

After being shot, Harris unsuccessfully tried to gain entrance into a club at 12th and Harrison streets, Williams said.

Harris was killed shortly after completing his shift as a bouncer at the Holy Cow nightclub on 1535 Folsom St., Williams said.

Police could not confirm if the slaying was related to an incident that occurred earlier in the night at Holy Cow, although he did say the scenario is among a series of possibilities police are investigating.

Harris’ death marked San Francisco’s 47th homicide this year. There were 98 homicides in San Francisco last year.
