Family says man killed in SF drive-by shooting was more than another victim 

Family members of a man killed last week in a drive-by shooting in the Bayview district want the public to know that he was more than just another unknown victim of violence.

A family member identified the victim to The San Francisco Examiner as Antyon Metoyer, 22. The San Francisco resident was shot as he was riding in a car on Cargo Street near Mendell Avenue about 6:12 p.m. May 6, according to police. Another vehicle drove up and shots were fired.

Metoyer died from his injuries the following day.

Metoyer, who went by the nickname Nunu, “was a wonderful young man who lost his father four years ago and was determined to take care of his mom and [sister] forever,” said the family member, who wished to remain anonymous.

Formerly a “star football player” at Washington High School in San Francisco, Metoyer also played football at Foothill College in Los Altos Hills. And, he was pursuing a boxing career at the time of the shooting, having just fought in Reno, Nev., the previous weekend.

“We are so devastated and still in shock,” the family member said. “He is not just a victim, but our family.”

Police would not comment on the shooting, only saying an investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information regarding the incident can call police at (415) 575-4444 or send a text to TIP411 with “SFPD” at the start of the message.

Metoyer’s death marks the seventh homicide of the year in San Francisco. That number includes five that were recorded as of March and the fatal hit-and-run that killed a Daly City man May 3.
