Posted By on Fri, Nov 4, 2011 at 5:28 PM


Traffic is backed up on 101 north while police investigate a shooting incident that injured an 11-year-old girl.

Police responded to the unit block of Leland Avenue after gunshots were detected by the Shot Spotter system at about 3:45 p.m. Several callers told 911 operators that the shooters had fired at a mini park at Leland and Peabody streets.

The shooters were seen getting into a green, two-door Lexus.

Officers found the young girl, who was not an intended target of the shooting, with non life threatening injuries. She was taken to the hospital where she is being treated for a gunshot wound.

Meanwhile, police spotted a Lexus matching the description of the suspect's car entering Highway 101 from Bayshore. Officers stopped the driver and detained three people in the Lexus. A gun was also found inside the car.

Police are investigating the shooting, and had no further details at this time.

  • 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.'"
