Violent SoMa night: stabbing, drive-by

A stabbing inside a popular South of Market nightclub and a drive-by shooting a few blocks away left four men injured early Sunday morning. Police have arrested three men.

The most recent attack occurred at 1:40 a.m. near the intersection of Harrison and Third streets. According to police, three men were walking to their parked car when two suspects drove up and opened fire.

All three were shot in the torso area, police said, and they are listed in serious or critical condition. No arrests were made in the shooting, and witness accounts differ as to the vehicle description.

Half an hour earlier, police responded to a stabbing they said occurred inside Ten 15 nightclub, located at 1015 Folsom St. According to police, the stabbing happened after a fistfight between at least four men got out of control.

Paramedics took the 31-year-old stabbing victim to San Francisco General Hospital, where he is listed in stable condition. Police said they arrested three men, a 24-year-old and two men in their 30s.

The nightclub has been operating for more than 20 years — an early supporter of The City’s electronic music scene — but in recent years ithasexperienced setbacks.

In February 2006, a gunman fired three shots inside the crowded club. Hao Tri Tu, 29, died almost immediately and another victim suffered a shot to the elbow.

In 2000, the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control cited Ten 15 for allegedly allowing “music promoters” and others to deal the drug Ecstasy inside the club. Three years later, state regulators renewed an effort to revoke the club’s liquor license and possibly shut the club down.

The club’s liquor license is still active, according to public records, but it is set to expire in less than a month. The club’s office was closed Sunday and nobody could be reached for comment.
