Bayview double shooting kills one on Third Street

A Saturday night double shooting in the Bayview killed a 26-year-old man and injured another victim, according to police.

The homicide victim, identified by the Medical Examiner’s Office on Monday as Terrell Blay, was shot along with a 21-year-old man on Third Street and Quesada Avenue at around 8:11 p.m.

Both men were taken to a hospital where Blay was pronounced dead, police said. The other man is expected to survive.

Police have not identified a suspect in the shooting.

Officer Adam Lobsinger, a police spokesperson, said the suspect sped away from the scene in a sedan.

But Lobsinger had few other details.

“All we have is that a number of people reported hearing shots fired,” Lobsinger said.

The case is under investigation.

The killing marked the ninth reported homicide of 2019 in San Francisco.

Last week, a man died at the hospital after being shot from behind on his 19th birthday in the lobby of a building in South of Market.

Taiepisi Gutu, of San Francisco, was identified by the Medical Examiner’s Office as the man shot last Monday afternoon at the CitiCenter building at 205 13th St.

Gutu died at the hospital two days later.

His alleged killer, Hakim Price Oden, 20, fled the scene and was shot by law enforcement in Southern California early last Tuesday morning.

Oden has since been charged with two counts of attempted murder on a peace officer in Riverside County in connection with the altercation with California Highway Patrol officers near the town of Blythe.

Both Gutu and Oden have had prior contacts with law enforcement.

In February, Gutu was arrested and charged in connection with the alleged violent robbery of a Chinese bakery store owner. He had been released from custody ahead of trial before being shot.

The robbery at the Good Orchard Bakery in the Excelsior made headlines because police took four hours to respond.
