Shooting outside CCSF’s Mission campus leaves one man dead

Witnesses say victim was sleeping in his car at 22nd and Bartlett when the shooting occurred

A man died after being shot in a brazen mid-day shooting outside of the City College of San Francisco Mission neighborhood campus.

Police say at 4:12 p.m. they responded to the activation of the ‘Shot Spotter,’ a gunshot detection system that detects and communicates the location of gunfire to stations, at the intersection of 22nd and Bartlett streets.

Responding officers found the victim, 28-year-old Jonathan Bello, suffering from gunshot wounds.

The suspect, a 30-year-old man, fled the scene on a bicycle according to police reports.

Witnesses in the area say that Bello was sleeping in his car when he was shot.

“I heard two quick pops, that’s it. I didn’t think they were gunshots at first, I just thought ‘it just can’t be,’” said Evon Opdyke, a resident of the neighborhood.

In response to the shooting, City College ordered its Mission campus to initiate a ‘lockdown’ from 4:45 to 5:45p.m., closing all campus entrances and preventing anyone from entering or exiting.

City College’s entrance onto Bartlett street was closed until 9:49 p.m., according to a spokesperson for the college.

Bello had previously been arrested in the Tenderloin in January, for possession of a concealed and loaded pistol.

Friends of Bello, who did not wish to be identified, called him “Dae Dae” and described him as a funny, caring person who “the block had a lot of love for.” They said he had previously had a job at a legal cannabis dispensary in Vallejo.

“He was working hard and he went legit, he made it out, he made it out,” said a friend of Bello.

The Examiner was able to confirm that Bello had previously worked at Better Health Group Marijuana Dispensary in Vallejo.

Bello was transported to the hospital but later died due to his injuries, police said.

Police say no arrests have been made and that this is an ongoing investigation.
