SF: ID OF MAN FATALLY SHOT IN FRONT OF POLICE IN BROAD DAYLIGHT RELEASED
SAN FRANCISCO (BCN)
The San Francisco medical examiner's office identified a man today who was fatally shot in broad daylight in San Francisco on Saturday as 40-year-old Myron Edwards.
San Francisco police witnessed Edwards getting shot at Eddy and Laguna streets around 3 p.m. and transferred him to the hospital, where he died, according to the Police Department.
No suspects were arrested.
Edwards was a San Francisco resident, said David LeNoue, a supervising investigator at the medical examiner's office.
UPDATE: Edwards was gunned down apparently for going to police after his home in a public housing unit was robbed by members of the Eddy Rock gang. They stole items including his TV and dog. Edward went to police, and was subsequently beaten by up to 15 gang members. Police then arrested several Eddy Rock gang members at a Western Addition house, in an unrelated raid, and recovered Edwards' dog. The next day Edwards tried to talk to one of the gang members to reason with him, and he was shot dead. Several witnesses saw the shooting, and 23-year-old Jonathan Brown was arrested for the killing.
