No suspects in yesterday's three killings

A 33-year-old San Francisco man was identified today by the San Francisco medical examiner's office as the third shooting victim in a bloody Wednesday in The City. Roland Fox was the victim of an apparent drive-by shooting at Sunnydale Avenue and Schwerin Street that happened at around 8 p.m., a San Francisco police dispatcher said. This was The City's third homicide yesterday and 89th this year.

Fox was sitting in his parked car when shots were fired from a passing vehicle, according to a police report. He suffered gunshot wounds to his neck and was transported to San Francisco General Hospital, where he died.

No suspects have been arrested and the shooting is under investigation, police said. The suspect or suspects may have been riding in a navy blue Ford Mustang, according to witnesses.

The violence followed two more fatal shootings that occurred early Wednesday morning.

The first victim, 29-year-old Ramadan Smith, was found lying facedown in the bike lane in the 2300 block of Post Street shortly before 1 a.m., according to police. The San Francisco resident sustained one gunshot wound and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The second victim, 17-year-old Reynaldo Cruz Hernandez, was killed in an apparent drive-by shooting on the corner of Ellis and Larkin streets just after 4 a.m. Cruz Hernandez was standing on the corner with two others when one of four passengers in a passing vehicle shot him, police said.

Suspects also remain at large for both of those shootings, which are under investigation.

Sahl, who confronted Eisenhower-era cultural complacency with acid stage monologues, delivering biting social commentary in the guise of a stand-up comedian and thus changing the nature of both stand-up comedy and social commentary, died on Tuesday, Oct. 26, 2021, at his home in Mill Valley, Calif., near San Francisco.
