Police identify suspects arrested in Pride weekend shooting 

San Francisco police have released the identity of two of the three suspects arrested in connection with a shooting near the Warfield Theater on Sunday.

Robert Smith, 20, of Hayward and Kwame Williams, 18, of Oakland were arrested Sunday along with a 15-year-old boy from Antioch not long after multiple shots were fired around Sixth and Markets streets about 6:30 p.m., Officer Albie Esparza said.

A 22-year-old woman was struck in the wrist by one of the bullets and a taxi cab was also struck by gunfire, Esparza said. The woman was hospitalized for her injury and is expected to survive.

Police were on the scene when they heard the gunfire, Esparza said, and allegedly saw Williams with a firearm in his hand firing it over his shoulder as he fled.

Witnesses helped identify Smith as one of the shooters as well, Esparza said.

Other officers noticed the juvenile suspect running from the scene and also took him into custody.

Smith was booked into County Jail on charges of attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, discharging a firearm in a grossly negligent manner, carrying a concealed firearm and carrying a firearm with the intent to commit a felony, Esparza said.

Williams was booked on charges of attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, carrying a concealed firearm, carrying a firearm with the intent to commit a felony and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

The boy was booked into the Juvenile Justice Center on multiple firearm charges, Esparza said.
