Sunglass loot: An employee of a retailer on the 3500 block of Sacramento Street called at 2:30 p.m. Sept. 17 about suspicious men apparently casing the store in preparation for a robbery or theft. The caller provided a vehicle description and direction of travel. Plainclothesmen spotted the car as it drove in circles around the neighborhood.

Pursuer scared off: A club employee left his car running on the 1000 block of Kearny Street at 5 a.m. Sept. 15 while he went inside to get other employees he planned to drive home. A young male jumped behind the wheel and began to drive off.
The victim leaned into the window to stop the driver, who responded by driving off at high speed. As they drove, a van with other suspects pursued them. One suspect drew a handgun from the van’s window and fired shots at the victim, who was still hanging on the driver’s side door and window. The suspect stopped at Front and Broadway streets and the victim ran from the vehicle.
