Police discover seven guns, seven suspects in 24 hours

Within a 24-hour period, San Francisco police officers seized seven guns and seven suspects in four separate incidents. Four of the suspects were youths.

The first incident occurred at 8:49 p.m. July 29 during a traffic stop at Vicente Street and 36th Avenue. During the stop, officers located a loaded assault weapon in the trunk. The driver was 17.

The second incident occurred the following morning on the 1000 block of Fitzgerald Avenue. Police searched a parked 1998 Buick Park Avenue after an officer recognized a passenger as being on active felony probation. Police located a handgun belonging to the man in the driver’s seat and arrested him.

That evening, police responded to a call of shots fired at Osceola Lane and La Salle Avenue at 6:10 p.m. and stopped a 1993 Dodge van for speeding where the shots were reported heard. The van’s two occupants told the officers that two men shot at them. Police located the two San Francisco teenagers, an 18-year-old and a 17-year-old, and arrested them. The police recovered a handgun during the arrest. Police also located a gun in the van and arrested one of the men in that vehicle.

Later that day, police responded to a call of shots fired at Brookdale Avenue and Santos Street. Police arrested two teens and seized two handguns. They also recovered an assault weapon that had been discarded in a trash can.
