One of three arrested in Castro nightclub shooting faces charges 

One of the three people arrested in connection with a shooting outside a Castro-area nightclub early Thursday morning was charged by the District Attorney’s Office on Friday and will return to court today for arraignment, Assistant District Attorney Alex Bastian said.

Jason Hill, 33, of Oakland, was charged with one felony count of negligent discharge of a firearm, two misdemeanor counts of firearm possession, one misdemeanor count of exhibiting a firearm and a misdemeanor count of vandalism, Bastian said.

Hill was arrested along with two others after an altercation between the three and a 38-year-old man.

After an argument between the victim and the group turned physical, the victim attempted to flee in his car and Hill allegedly fired a handgun at the fleeing vehicle. The victim was not injured in the altercation.

Terrance Hill, 26, of Oakland, was also arrested in connection with the incident, along with 26-year-old Ava Sasso of San Francisco.

Prosecutors said there was insufficient evidence to charge Terrance Hill. Sasso, who is on probation, will not face any charges either, but prosecutors will be seeking to revoke her probation, Bastian said.

Jason Hill is currently in custody on $430,000 bail, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

He returns to court today at 1:30 p.m. for arraignment.

Two arrested in marijuana cultivation bust in court

A man and a woman arrested in a drug bust near Mt. Davidson on Thursday will be in court today for arraignment, Bastian said.

Alexander Lioulios, 33, and Lauren Todd, 26, both of San Francisco, both face felony charges of marijuana cultivation, two counts of possession of marijuana for sale, theft of utility services and two counts of operating a drug den, prosecutors said. Todd faces an additional felony charge of possession of pills for sale.

The two were arrested on Thursday in their residence in the 100 block of Molimo Drive after reports in the area of a strong odor of marijuana, police said at the time.

Once inside, investigators discovered that the two were reportedly powering their operation with stolen power and that they were operating a “butane honey oil lab,” which is a sometimes explosive way to extract concentrated cannabis oil from marijuana leaves.

The two remain in custody, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Lioulios is currently being held on $180,000 bail and Todd is being held on $133,000 bail.

They both will return to court today at 1:30 p.m. for arraignment, Bastian said.

Prehearing conference for man accused of multiple hit-and-runs

A 21-year-old man charged with stealing a construction vehicle from a Lower Haight work site and smashing it into several other cars around town before being subdued by San Francisco firefighters will be back in court Thursday for a prehearing conference, Bastian said.

Tyrell Duncan faces felony counts of unlawful taking of a vehicle and evading arrest, three counts of misdemeanor hit-and-run and a misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia, Bastian said.

Duncan is accused of stealing the vehicle July 30 and going on a raucous joyride where he allegedly smashed into cars in a car wash parking lot before abandoning the car at City Hall, after firefighters blocked the car in.

Duncan reportedly ran from the car but the firefighters ran after and tackled him.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges on Aug. 1 and returns to court Thursday at 9 a.m. for a prehearing conference, Bastian said.

Duncan is still in custody on $200,100 bail, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
