Three men wanted for double-fatal shooting

South San Francisco police are asking for the public’s help in identifying suspects in the shooting that left two people dead and four wounded on Wednesday evening.

Witnesses told police they saw three male suspects driving away from the shooting at Eighth Lane and Linden Avenue in a dark-colored early 2000-model Chevrolet Impala with tinted windows, according to the South San Francisco Police Department.

“The full resources of the city will be brought to bear to apprehend the perpetrators,” South San Francisco Mayor Kevin Mullin said in a statement.

The San Mateo County gang intelligence unit is actively engaged in assisting local police with the investigation, Mullin said.

Officers responded to multiple reports of shots fired at around 7:15 p.m. and found six males between 15 and 20 years old who had been wounded, two of them fatally, according to police.

The other four victims were taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where one was reported to be in critical condition as of 11:15 a.m., according to police.

“We pray for the victims and our thoughts are with the victims’ families as they endure this tragedy,” Mullin said.

The San Mateo County coroner’s office has not released the identities of the two victims who were killed.

Police are asking anyone with information that might help the investigation to contact South San Francisco police at (650) 877-8900.

The mayor said the Police Department is stepping up patrols in the neighborhood where the shooting occurred and asked the community to participate in efforts to stem gang activity.

“The cycle of violence must be stopped and it will take the efforts of an entire community to do so,” Mullin said.
