CBS 5 CrimeWatch
SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) ― San Francisco police Saturday are investigating a Friday-night shooting near the intersection of Geary Boulevard and Laguna Street that left one male in critical condition with gunshot wounds to the head, according to Officer Ed O'Toole.

A San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency transit driver reported hearing two to six shots about 50 to 100 feet behind the bus at about 8:47 p.m., O'Toole said.

A male who had been shot in the head then drove his car into the intersection of Geary Boulevard and Laguna Street, O'Toole said.

Three to five men in a nearby vehicle reportedly stopped to help the victim and told the bus driver to call 911, according to O'Toole.

When the victim attempted to exit his vehicle, the men stopped him and drove him in his car eastbound on Geary Boulevard to San Francisco General Hospital, O'Toole said.

Witnesses described the suspect vehicle as a black or dark blue Ford Mustang or a Toyota that left the area eastbound on Geary Boulevard, O'Toole said.

In case you haven't seen it:

Later in the article, it goes into detail about formerly-suspected murders which have been reclassified as accidental, suicide, or justified.

How come Oakland's numbers include "justifiable " homicides but San Francisco gets to take them out of the official count? Isn't the FBI responsible for determining the official count at the end of the year. The local media never explains how SF is allowed to whittle down their homicide numbers compared to neighboring cities.

With the San Francisco Police department responsible for "reclassifying" the official homicide count, how can there be any doubt about the validity of the "official" numbers? You have got to be kidding me!

Rah, are you sure they haven't closed you down? You've been very quiet recently. I'm thinking you've been busy with the Holidays. What's been going on?
