Peace march tonight in response to recent slayings

A candlelight peace march is being held Sunday evening in the Mission district following a wave of violence that has alarmed residents and prompted increased police presence.

Participants plan to gather at 6:30 p.m. at 24th Street and Treat Avenue. The march, which is being hosted by Mission Education Project Inc. and the Lower 24th Street Merchant & Neighborhood Association, is set to begin at 7 p.m.

Marchers plan to head down 24th Street toward Potrero Avenue to Utah Street and then head back to Treat Avenue and 24th Street. They will then walk down Treat Avenue to 23rd Street and back and head toward Mission and 24th streets and back, ending at 24th Street and Treat Avenue.

The peace march is in response to a spike in homicides and violence, with the most recent incident being on Saturday morning, when a 19-year-old San Francisco man was injured in a shooting in the Mission district, less than 24 hours after and just blocks away from where two men were fatally shot Thursday, police said.

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)
