Men arrested in Tenderloin shooting of eight charged with attempted murder 

The two men arrested in connection with the shooting of eight people in the Tenderloin on Sunday night have been charged with numerous counts of attempted murder among other charges, according to the District Attorney's Office.

Curtis Warren, 25, and Verle Jones, 24, both of San Francisco each face eight counts of attempted murder and eight counts of assault with a firearm, and each are charged with one count of possession of a firearm by a felon, Assistant District Attorney Alex Bastian said.

The two men were arrested in Emeryville on Monday by San Francisco police in collaboration with the Emeryville Police Department.

They face charges stemming from a shooting that happened just before 9 p.m. at Turk and Taylor streets on Sunday night. Luckily, none of the eight victims were seriously injured in the shooting, which was reportedly over a game of dice, when an argument escalated into the shooting.

Warren and Jones reportedly fled the scene after the shooting in a silver Volkswagen Jetta, which police recovered Monday in Emeryville. At the time, the two did not have any firearms on them.

The men appeared in court for arraignment Thursday, but the case was put over until Friday. They remain in custody on $4 million bail each.
