One killed, two stabbed in North Beach

The holiday weekend ended with a spate of violence in North Beach as one man was killed in an early-morning shooting and two injured in an unrelated stabbing.

Police responded to an apartment building on Francisco Street at about 8:40 a.m. Tuesday after neighbors heard gunshots, police Sgt. Steve Mannina said. They arrived to find Oliver Earle, 41, lying on the ground with gunshot wounds. Earle was pronounced dead a short time later.

Earlier, an argument near a bar turned violent when three out-of-town visitors apparently clashed with two locals in a street fight involving an ice pick at about 2:30 a.m. Sgt. Carl T, of Central Station, said the two San Francisco men were stabbed by the ice pick after getting into a confrontation with a man and woman from Antioch and another man from Oakley.

Police confiscated the ice pick and a utility knife from the three suspects, T said. The Antioch man who allegedly used the ice pick was arrested on two counts of assault and one count of carrying a concealed deadly weapon.

Police said the incidents were unrelated.
