Police seek public’s help in finding suspect in Western Addition shooting 

Police are still on the hunt for a suspect in a Western Addition shooting last month, and on Wednesday released sketches of the man and the car he was driving.

The shooting occurred about 2:15 p.m. Aug. 31 when a 37-year-old man crossing the street in the crosswalk in the area of Golden Gate Avenue and Broderick Street was nearly struck by the suspect vehicle, Officer Albie Esparza said.

An argument between the pedestrian and the driver ensued and the driver pulled into a nearby driveway and shot the victim from about 30 to 50 feet away. He then drover closer to the victim and shot him again.

The victim sustained critical injuries, but is expected to survive.

Police are seeking the public’s help in finding this suspect. He is described as an Asian man, 20 to 29 years old with dark or tanned skin. He has no accent when speaking English, Esparza said. He was last seen wearing a backward baseball cap, possibly red with a flat brim.

The suspect's car is described as a newer model two-door Honda Civic or Accord that is metallic gray.

Anyone with information on the suspect is encouraged to call police at (415) 575-4444 or send a text to TIP411 with “SFPD” at the start of the message.
