SAN FRANCISCO (BCN)
A San Francisco man who was shot and killed Friday afternoon has been identified today by the San Francisco medical examiner's office as 32-year-old Herbert Bell.
Bell was driving in front of 1655 Jerrold St. around 2:45 p.m. when two suspects fired into his vehicle. Bell suffered gunshot wounds and died at the scene, San Francisco police Sgt. Neville Gittens said. A female passenger in the car was not injured.
Police are investigating the shooting, but there are no suspects, Gittens said.
Notice how when there's a murder in Oakland, Berkeley, Redwood City, or San Jose, the news is all over it. Kill someone in SF, and you have a good chance there will be no news, save for a skimpy article that appears 3 days later, on Bay City Newswire and the Examiner. I came across this one by chance, checking the BCN website. I saw the headline, and pasted it into google (rather than pay $20 to view the article)...that's how I found out. Cbs5 apparently had it for maybe an hour before it was pushed off their site.
