Mission Shooting: Gang Shoot Non-Gang Member in the Back

by Accidental Bear

If it were up to me I’d be throwing the death penalty at dumb-asses like this! ( not kidding). Put yourself in the victims shoes…. got your butt out of bed at the ass crack of dawn, walking to work ( still dreaming of bed) , and out of  nowhere shot in the back. The fact that now you have the day off doesn’t balance things out. <extra sad face , because this is blocks from my house>

sfpd_arrestcuffs.jpgshooting Monday morning in San Francisco’s Mission District appears to have been gang-related, police said Tuesday.

The victim was on his way to work at about 7:30 a.m. when two suspects drove up to him near the corner of 17th and Mission streets and began “throwing gang signs,” police said.

The victim, who is not believed to be a gang member, was shot in the back by one of the suspects before the vehicle took off, according to police. The man was taken to a local hospital and treated for injuries not believed to be life threatening.

David Salgado and Giovanni Sandoval, both 19-year-old San Mateo County residents, were arrested after the shooting, police said.

Officers used a description of the assailants to find and arrest the two men, according to police. A gun was allegedly recovered from their vehicle.

The pair was charged with attempted homicide, carrying a concealed weapon, carrying a loaded weapon, and participation in a criminal street gang.

They remained in custody Tuesday night.
