San Francisco police are looking for a trio of criminals who wreaked havoc on San Francisco last night, starting with a shooting and ending with a car collision on Highway 101.

The drama started at about 6:30 p.m. when police responded to the unit block of Lucy Street regarding a shooting. When the cops arrived, they found two victims suffering from gunshot wounds. Both were taken to San Francisco General Hospital with unknown injuries.

Fortunately, the cops were able to ID a suspect during their investigation.

And then more craziness came.

Later, at about 10 p.m., officers spotted the suspect who they believed had been involved in the earlier shooting. The suspect was in a silver SUV located at Hawes and Palou streets, Shyy says.

Officers attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver sped off, leading the cops on a chase toward Highway 101. The suspects were headed toward South San Francisco when they collided with another vehicle on Highway 101 near Highway 380, police say.

"Multiple occupants fled on foot, including the shooting suspect," Shyy says. "The driver was taken into custody."

Police went through the SUV and found a cache of firearms, Shyy says.

"SFPD is actively searching for three suspects that bailed from the silver SUV. SFPD canine units and allied agencies are assisting in the search," he says.

The driver in the other vehicle suffered minor injuries.

  • 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.'"
