A man shot dead in San Francisco’s Western Addition neighborhood this weekend was “targeted,” Police Chief Greg Suhr said Monday.

The man identified by the medical examiner’s office as San Francisco resident Curtis Cail, 23, was shot around 3 p.m. outside a McDonald’s in the 1100 block of Fillmore Street, according to police.

He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with multiple gunshot wounds, where he died, police said.

Cail had been previously arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of James Earl Lee, 54, on May 11, 2012 in the 1100 block of Turk Street.

A second victim, a 27-year-old woman, was also shot but survived, police said.

Cail was arrested along with Kenneth Chappell, then 33, and charged with murder, attempted murder and other charges, but those charges were dismissed in 2013, according to court records.

Police Chief Greg Suhr today said that investigators believed Cail was “targeted” but did not know whether his murder was connected to the 2012 murder.

No arrest has been made, and the suspect left the scene in a newer model gray vehicle, according to police.CrimeFatal ShootingHomicideMcDonald'sMurderSan Francisco Police DepartmentShootingWestern Addition
