Three struck, one killed in Western Addition shooting

A 19-year-old woman died from gunshot wounds late Saturday after she and two others were struck during a shooting in the Western Addition.

The woman, later identified by the Medical Examiner’s Office as Ranisha Raven, was shot alongside a 33-year-old man and 16-year-old girl near Buchanan Street and Larch Way around 11 p.m. when officers responded to reports of a shooting, police said.

The victims were taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where Raven died from gunshot wounds to her leg and abdomen.

The man was shot in the leg and the girl was struck in the upper thigh. Both are expected to survive.

There is no suspect in the shooting, police said. But crime scene investigators responded to the shooting and there were several surveillance cameras in the area.

Raven’s death marks the 29th homicide of the year in The City.
