It was a violent Memorial Day in San Francisco where two people were stabbed at a construction site and three others were shot during a drive-by shooting yesterday.
At about 2 p.m., police responded to Geary Boulevard and Larkin Street regarding a double stabbing. Police say a homeless man was urinating in public at a construction site where two workers were on the job. The construction workers asked the man to zip it up and leave. Instead, the homeless man pulled out a knife and slashed them both, according to Officer Gordon Shyy.
One of the victims was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with a serious stab wound. The suspect was later found and arrested, police say.
Three hours later, police raced out to Keith and Palou streets in the Bayview regarding a shooting that was picked up on the Shot Spotter. When police arrived, they found two victims with gunshot wounds. A third victim had been taken to the hospital by a witness, Shyy says.
One of the victims later died. As of this morning, medical authorities were not releasing the name of the deceased victim.
Police believe this was a drive-by shooting.
