Details sought in Halloween shooting as victim recovers

The condition of a Burlingame man injured in a shooting outside a Halloween party at Fort Mason last week has improved, according to police.

Now police are searching for photos or video of the Oct. 28 incident, in which 21-year-old Ben Pessah was shot as he was leaving a party with his girlfriend, Carissa Harper, 20, and two other people.

Suspect Hun Saelee, 30, of San Leandro allegedly grabbed Harper’s chest and tried to start a fight, Harper said. He eventually grabbed a gun out of the trunk of his car and allegedly shot Pessah in the head as he ran away.

Pessah was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries that were described as life-threatening, but police said his life is no longer considered at risk.

Saelee allegedly fled the scene with 26-year-old Judiana Lau, but was later arrested at his home.

Lau has been charged with being an accessory to the crime after the fact, but she was able to post bail.

Anyone who captured photos or video footage of the incident is asked to call police at (415) 553-1753.
