  • Two males were shot dead in the Sunnydale neighborhood of San Francisco early this morning.

Two men were shot dead early this morning in San Francisco's Sunnydale neighborhood, police said.

About 12:50 a.m., officers responded to the area of Santos Street and Blythedale Avenue on a shooting call and found 22-year-old Tantrell Crawford and 27-year-old Deshawn Byes suffering from gunshot wounds.

Both were declared dead at the scene by medics, Officer Albie Esparza said.

The suspects have only been described as two black males and a Samoan male who fled in a white truck, Esparza said.

Police have not released many details about the shooting, including a motive.

Both Crawford and Byes were named in a 2010 city gang injunction as members of the ruthless Down Below Gangsters, which operates in the neighborhood.

Crawford's nickname was "Trail Mix" and Byes' was "Posso," according to city documents.

Anyone with information about the double homicide is encouraged to contact SFPD anonymously at 415-575-4444 or text-a-tip to TIP411 with SFPD at start of the message.
