Standoff, arrests follow early morning gunfire in Alamo Square

Beth Laberge/Special to the S.F. ExaminerProbe: Police arrested a man Sunday in connection with reports of shots fired; the standoff prompted evacuations of a home near Alamo Square.

A 3½-hour standoff near Alamo Square on Sunday morning ended with two people taken into custody by officers, police said.

The ordeal began just before 7 a.m. when cops responded to reports of shots fired near the intersection of Eddy and Webster streets, Sgt. Michael Andraychak said. Casings were reportedly found there, but no suspect or victim was around.

During an investigation, police received information that the suspect, described only as a male, might have been hiding in a residence in the 1300 block of Eddy Street.

The suspect refused to leave the house, police said, and by 11 a.m. police ordered all occupants of the house to vacate. An undisclosed number of men and women and four children then exited the house, Andraychak said.

A 28-year-old Vallejo man was arrested and is believed to be a suspect in the shooting, though police said no weapon was found in the home. A 30-year-old woman also was arrested on a theft warrant.

Andraychak said traces of blood were found in the 1500 block of Eddy Street and are believed to be related to the shooting. Police said an investigation is ongoing, although no victim had sought help at any city hospitals as of Sunday afternoon.
