Police release description of suspect sought for DPT worker shooting 

Police are looking for a man suspected of a road rage shooting that injured a San Francisco city employee working this morning in the Bayview district.

An employee with The City’s Department of Parking and Traffic was shot in the shoulder at about 8:35 a.m. near the intersection of Palou Avenue and Quint Street.

The suspect is described as a 30-year-old Hispanic man with a medium build. He was last seen wearing a red baseball cap and red T-shirt, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

The suspect had been angry and cursing after a DPT painting truck had made a U-turn or similar maneuver. He got out of his car and opened fire on the truck, and one of the bullets hit the driver in the shoulder blade, Esparza said.

A passenger in the DPT truck was not injured in the shooting.

The suspect fled the scene in what witnesses described as a dark colored medium-sized car, Esparza said.

The DPT employee was treated for his injuries at San Francisco General Hospital and was released earlier today, fire department spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said.
