One dead, two injured in Excelsior District shooting

Police investigating whether homicide connected to sideshow reported in area

One person died and two others were injured in a shooting early Monday in San Francisco’s Excelsior District, police said.

Officers responding about 12:15 a.m. to a sideshow in the area of Russia Avenue and Paris Street found the three victims with gunshot wounds nearby, at Mission Street and Persia Avenue.

All three were taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries and one has since died, San Francisco police Officer Robert Rueca said.

Police haven’t confirmed whether the shooting is connected to the sideshow, and said that question is part of the investigation. No suspects have been arrested in the shooting, Rueca said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the SFPD at 415-575-4444 or text at tip to TIP411 and start the message with SFPD.

UPDATE, Tuesday Sept. 8, 2020: The man killed in a shooting early Monday morning has been identified as 21-year-old Cesar Corza, according to the city’s medical examiner’s office.

Corza, a Sacramento resident, worked in construction and was an aspiring boxer and an expecting father, his friends and family members said on social media. His family has created a GoFundMe page to help with funeral costs.
