Weekend sees fatal hit and run, life-threatening shooting 

The suspects of separate weekend catastrophes - a fatal hit and run in mid-Market on Saturday night and near-death shooting in the Silver Terrace neighborhood Sunday morning - are still at large.

The shooting happened in the 2400 block of San Bruno Avenue just after 2 a.m. Police had very little details, except that both a man and a woman were shot, taken to San Francisco General Hospital, and that the man is hanging on to life.

And around 9:30 p.m. Saturday, police responded to a man lying in the crosswalk at Eighth and Market streets.

Police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said that it appeared as if the man, likely in his 30s, had recently been struck by a vehicle, but no witnesses have come forward. It is the third fatal pedestrian crash in a week.

The Medical Examiner’s Office said they could not reveal his identity because they are still waiting to notify next of kin.

No arrests have been made.

The man who was likely killed by a vehicle Saturday died one day after Lourdes Richman, 71, of San Francisco, was struck by and killed by a truck near AT&T Park.

Richman was walking in the crosswalk at Townsend and Second streets around 8:50 a.m. when a truck driver turned left onto Second Street and hit her, police said.

Then on Monday, Aurora Venida, 87, was struck by a car at Geary and Arguello boulevards on Monday. She was taken to a hospital where she died on Wednesday, according to the Medical Examiner's Office.
