Two shot, one fatally in SoMa parking lot dispute

A Richmond man died at the hospital and another was injured in a shooting early Sunday morning in the South of Market neighborhood.

The incident took place on Jessie Street between Fifth and Sixth streets about 2 a.m., police spokesman Sgt. Michael Andraychak said.

Workers in the area said the shooting occurred in a parking lot often used by bar and club patrons.

“There was some type of dispute which resulted in a shooting,” police Chief Jeff Godown said. The cause of the argument and where it began were still being investigated.

Entertainment Commission Executive Director Jocelyn Kane said she had no information about whether the shooting was connected to any area nightclubs.

Victim Joshua McClain, 23, was shot multiple times.

Following the shooting, the man was driven from the area by a private vehicle, Andraychak said. UC San Francisco police found the car at Third and Mariposa streets near the university’s Mission Bay Campus, he said.

The man was taken to San Francisco General Hospital where he died. His name had not been released as of press time.
The second shooting victim, another Richmond man in his 20s, turned up at a hospital in Richmond, where he was treated for minor injuries, according to police.

The shooting suspect, who reportedly ran from the scene, was described only as a black man in his 20s.

An employee at the parking lot said the graveyard-shift worker told him he had been inside his booth and heard gunshots nearby but did not see what happened.

Police towed away a Dodge sedan from the lot, the employee said.
