Police ID suspect in Saturday Mid-Market shooting 

Terrell Blay, 18, of San Francisco, was identified Monday as one of two teenage suspects detained following Saturday’s brazen Mid-Market district shooting that injured five people.

Blay and a 16-year-old boy were arrested shortly after the broad daylight gang shootout at Market and Seventh streets. The identity of the 16-year-old is not being released because he is a minor.

Blay, who allegedly attempted to conceal a gun and run from police, is being held on charges of possessing a firearm, destroying or concealing evidence and resisting or delaying police, police spokesman Lt. Troy Dangerfield said Monday. He was also booked on gang enhancement charges, Dangerfield said.

The 16-year-old was charged with several felonies, including assault with a deadly weapon, various weapons charges and gang charges, police said.

Prosecutors are reviewing the case and will likely announce Tuesday whether they will formally charge the suspects, Assistant District Attorney Seth Stewards said.

Among the wounded were a young man who police said may have been the target of the gang-related dispute, as well as a 74-year-old San Franciscan, a 45-year-old man visiting from England, a 20-year-old UC Santa Cruz student, and a 17-year-old El Cerrito boy.

All victims are expected to survive.
