Officer Gordon Shyy says that at about 5:15 p.m., police responded to a shooting on the 1400 block of La Salle Avenue — the same street where two others were killed last month. When police arrived, they found two people severely injured.
Both victims were taken to San Francisco General Hospital where they later died. Police say the two victims were riding on motorcycles in the area when gunfire erupted. They crashed their bikes while attempting to flee the violence. Police confirmed that one of the victims had a gunshot wound, however, it's not yet clear whether the victims died as a result of the collision or the gunfire.
The Medical Examiner's has not identified the victims as of this morning.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact SFPD at (415) 575-4444.
Police are looking for at least one gunman who opened fire in the city's Bayview neighborhood last night, killing two motorcyclists who died while trying to dodge the bullets.
