Another murder on Monday

Turns out a second man was killed on Monday, in Vis Valley, apparently in retaliation for the killing of Byron Smith on Sunday.

That makes 7 homicides in 4 days.

Do you have any info on a murder that took place on the night of sept 2 (Sun just before midnight) outside the hilton hotel on o'farrell? I was returning from Walgreen's to the Hilton at midnight when the police were arriving. From a woman that was a guest at the hotel and who was standing out front at the time of the shooting, she said a cab had pulled up and the passenger was shot when he got out. She said it looked like a young man in his twenties. I know there were at least 50-100 of us who were guests at the Hilton who were watching the police and later the medical examiner photograph the body but I have looked for a report in the paper and on your site and haven't seen it yet.

well damn, no I did not hear of this one. Add this to the list of murders reported by witnesses, but that are not mentioned by the papers...hopefully they'll add an article eventually.

I was near that hotel on Sunday night/Monday morning too and saw the covered body and the police line. Friends were staying in the hotel. I've not come across any official news story either. Keep us posted. Thanks.
