Posted By on Mon, Nov 28, 2011 at 7:30 AM

Police have released surveillance of the suspect they say intentionally ran down a Cal firefighter with his vehicle on Thanksgiving Day, critically injuring him.

The victim, a 29-year-old firefighter and former marine, was at a Shell gas station at about 2:45 a.m. on Geary Boulevard near 11th Avenue when the suspect ran over him with his car and drove off.

The two had been seen arguing at a nearby Jack in the Box minutes before the attack.

San Francisco police released the following surveillance from the restaurant that also shows photos of the wanted suspect.

According to police, the victim, whose name has not been released, left the restaurant after the fight and walked to the Shell station; the suspect followed him with his car and intentionally hit him before fleeing. The suspect was seen in a black Mazda CX or similar-looking sport utility vehicle, with 12-spoke sport rims, police said. The car has possible front-end damage.

The suspect is described as a mixed-race or Latino male, 18 to 24 years old, with short black hair and a manicured beard. 

The victim remains in the hospital with life threatening injuries.

Anyone with information about the suspect or the incident should contact police on the anonymous tip line at 575-4444 or through text message at TIP411.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
