Victim in Potrero Hill triple-shooting dies - Woman Shot Dead in Hunters Point

S.F. police seek help in solving shootings of 2 women

(02-29) 16:41 PST SAN FRANCISCO - San Francisco police asked for the public's help Friday in solving a pair of unrelated shootings that left two women dead.

The first shooting happened Feb. 13 during a home invasion attack on Potrero Hill by an assailant who police believe may have been looking for drugs.

Liri Lesku, 34, was mortally wounded when the gunman broke into the residence at 406 Kansas St. at 2:30 p.m. and opened fire, police said. A man and a woman who were also in the home were wounded. Their names have not been released.

Lesku died Feb. 26 at San Francisco General Hospital.

"Whoever the gunman was, obviously he knew who they were," said Lt. John Murphy of the police homicide detail.

Records show that at the time of her death, Lesku was on probation stemming from a felony drug conviction in May 2006.

She was charged in January with felony heroin possession, and prosecutors allowed her to plead no contest to a misdemeanor count of solicitation of drugs. She was given credit for 17 days in custody and put on probation for three years.

The second shooting happened at 1 p.m. Feb. 19 and claimed the life of Sharon Cole, 33. She died at San Francisco General on Feb. 20.

Cole was a passenger in a car when she was shot, and the driver took her to the hospital, police said. Investigators believe she was shot near a car wash at Third Street and Paul Avenue, where officers received a report of gunfire. But they lack evidence and the driver has not cooperated with police, Murphy said.

"Right now, we have no crime scene," he said.

Police appealed to anyone with information about either killing to call investigators at (415) 553-1145.

I wonder what the deal was with the lack of reporting for BOTH of these murders. The first shooting was ignored by the Chronicle completely, for over 2 weeks, and still for 3 days after one of the victims died. The other murder was ignored for over a week also.

It's called protecting the San Francisco business and tourism industry. This is a tactic that the SF media has employed for years. After the great 1906 earthquake, the SF media sent out press releases to East Coast papers under playing the destruction and way under counting the dead. This was done in order to make sure that investment from the East Coast would not dry up. The SF media has been covering up for San Francisco ever since. Hence, the omission of crime stories, complicity in reporting fudged crime stats, and constant Oakland finger pointing.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.

I googled a close friends name-one I've not seen or spoken to in some time, and was horrified to read that she had been murdered. To add insult to injury, the author of the article seemed to -if not actually accuse-hint that she was to blame for her own death. The author felt it appropriate to include in the article the fact that she had been arrested for felony heroin possesion and was, at the time of her death, on three years probation. What is the message here? That people on probation should expect their chances of being shot in the face by an unknown intruder to rise? Why is the idea of writing the kind of article that each and every person would, if faced with the shooting death of a loved one, find at least informative if not understanding;considered out of touch, archaic. I found the article to be unkind and unprofessional?
