UPDATE: The Richmond District station newsletter sent out on 2/28/17 indicates that there were at least five shootings that took place on Sunday night along Geary:
- The windows to several Richmond District businesses were victimized in what appears to be a string of potentially related incidents. Harrowingly, several of the buildings were occupied at the time. Thankfully no injuries were reported. There have been at least five reported incidents of business’ windows being shot over the weekend. It is currently undetermined whether the damage was caused by a firearm, a BB gun, or another type of projectile.
Two of the victimized businesses were restaurants. Both restaurants had several customers inside at the time of the incident. Witnesses reported hearing the sound of glass breaking, and what appeared to be bullet-type holes were found in the front glass windows of the businesses.
These incidents are being aggressively investigated by the Richmond Station Investigations Team, and Richmond District Officers are vigilantly patrolling in the neighborhood. There is very limited suspect description at this time, and anybody with information is encouraged to contact Sgt. Kerow, Richmond Station Investigations, at (415) 666-8003, or call the SFPD Richmond Station Anonymous Tip Line.
