Man fatally shot in SF’s Oceanview neighborhood

A young man was shot to death just after 8 a.m Sunday near a street corner in The City’s Oceanview neighborhood.

Police and the Medical Examiner’s Office have yet to release detailed information on the killing, but the owner of a nearby shop told the San Francisco Examiner the shooting started inside a clothing store on Plymouth Avenue and Broad Street.

The shooting then spilled outside from the Dream Team clothing store onto Broad Street where the victim was shot, the shopkeeper said.

Police were not able to confirm those details. On Monday morning, however, the front window of the Dream Team store was boarded up and the shop was closed. At least one bullet hole could be seen in the window of the barbershop next door.

In a statement Sunday, police said the man was struck by gunfire in the upper torso several times. He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital but died.

Police are investigating the shooting as a homicide and have not yet released suspect information on the shooter or possible vehicle involved.

The Medical Examiner has not identified the man.

The owner of the nearby store, whose name is not being released for safety reasons, said their vehicle was struck by gunfire on the front fender and taken by police for evidence.

The owner also said a sign outside the stores was hit by bullets and removed by police.

Surveillance cameras on the owner’s Broad Street store were recording during the shooting, but did not capture anything of use, the owner was told by police.

About a month ago, Dream Team was robbed and its window busted, according to the nearby store owner.

Last year, the Examiner spoke with Dream Team owner Donald Andrews who was giving away Christmas toys to children in the Oceanview neighborhood. Andrews turned into a community activist after he was shot in the mouth in 2004 in a case of mistaken identity.

Andrews could not be reached for comment by press time.
