Drive-by shooting victim identified

A 30-year-old man who was killed in a drive-by shooting in San Francisco late Monday morning has been identified as Albert Collins, of San Francisco, according to the San Francisco medical examiner's office.

Collins' 9-year-old daughter was standing with him and was also grazed by a bullet, but her injuries were not life threatening, according to San Francisco police Sgt. Steve Mannina.

Two other men, brothers ages 21 and 23, were also injured by gunfire, Mannina said.

The shooting happened at about 11:40 a.m., when a gunman in a passing vehicle fired multiple shots that struck the four people standing on the sidewalk in the 100 block of Santos Street near the city's southern

border, Mannina said.

All four victims, who live in the area, were transported to San Francisco General Hospital, Mannina said.

Collins was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Police have not released a description of the suspect vehicle in the shooting, but Mannina said the vehicle fled onto Brookdale Avenue to Geneva Avenue, and from Geneva Avenue onto Mission Street.

The investigation is ongoing.

On Sunday, California bore the brunt of what meteorologists referred to as a bomb cyclone and an atmospheric river, a convergence of storms that brought more than half a foot of rain to parts of the Bay Area, along with high winds, concerns about flash floods and the potential for heavy snow in the Sierra Nevada. Much of the Bay Area was under a flash flood watch on Sunday, with the National Weather Service warning of the potential for mudslides across the region. (NOAA via The New York Times)
