Sunset district shooting may be related to Daly City ‘stabbing’ victims, police say 

A shooting in a San Francisco eatery early Tuesday may be connected to a quadruple stabbing in which the victims showed up at a Daly City hospital, though police say the incidents remain a mystery because the victims have been lying through their teeth.

Four men suffering “moderate” stab wounds arrived at Seton Medical Center in Daly City around 2:30 a.m., Daly City police spokesman Sgt. David Mackriss said.

One of the victims told police they had been attacked at Serra Bowl, a bowling alley on Junipero Serra Boulevard. But when Daly City cops went to the bowling alley, they saw that the business was closed and that no crime had been committed there.

“There was no evidence of anything at all occurring there,” Mackriss said.

The victim changed his story a number of times, Mackriss said. He mentioned at one point that he and his pals had been in San Francisco, police said.

Meanwhile, cops with the San Francisco Police Department called Daly City police warning of suspects involved in a major incident in The City’s Sunset district.

Also roughly around 2:30 a.m., a fight turned into a shooting in a late-night cafe in the 1800 block of 32nd Avenue, San Francisco police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

SFPD was called to the restaurant on a call of battery and shots fired. After two men got into a fight, one of them went to his car to fetch a gun, Esparza said. He went into the café and started shooting. Luckily, no one was hit by the gunfire, Esparza said.

The victim tried to wrestle the gun away from the gunman, but then a second suspect came in and punched him. The two suspects fled, but they left the gun behind. Police now have a hold of the firearm, Esparza said.

Police in Daly City and San Francisco are now working together to piece together how the Outer Sunset shooting may have been connected with the stabbing of four men.

“When the victims are not forthcoming, it makes it challenging for investigators,” Mackriss said.

Mackriss said the stabbed men may have wanted to deflect the focus on themselves as possible suspects, or perhaps are considering taking the matter into their own hands.
