This was San Francisco’s 21st homicide of 2022, and the third to occur in Bayview/Hunters Point in the last two months. A 21-year-old man was fatally shot on April 1 near the intersection of Third and Palou streets, and a 30-year-old was fatally shot on May 23 on Osceola Lane near LaSalle Avenue.
Last year at this time, San Francisco had seen 19 homicides, so this marks a slight uptick in the city’s homicide rate over 2021.
According to the SFPD’s CompStat crime dashboard, assaults are also up year over year by 11%, and rapes are up 7%, suggesting an overall uptick in violent crime.
Robberies and burglaries are down overall, with burglaries down a whopping 25% since last year — but meanwhile larceny thefts, which include car burglaries, bicycle thefts, and shoplifting, are up 19% year over year.
Anyone with information about Monday’s shooting is asked to call the SFPD’s tip line at 415-575-4444 or to send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” at the start of the message.
