Two Wounded at Vigil for S.F. Gay Pride Shooting


A 21-year-old man was shot through the cheek and a 20-year-old man shot in the leg by an unknown assailant during an impromptu vigil on Monday evening for Stephen Powell, who was shot and killed at San Francisco's Pink Saturday pride event Saturday.

The two victims were shot around 8 p.m. Monday near the intersection of Third Street and Quesada Avenue in the city's Bayview neighborhood, San Francisco Police Department spokesman Samson Chan told The Advocate. Neither shooting victim suffered life-threatening wounds.

A suspect or suspects have yet to be identified, Chan said.

Powell was one of three people shot during the annual pre-Pride celebration. The other two victims, a 19-year-old woman and a 29-year-old man, are expected to fully recover.

Ed Perkins, 20, of San Francisco was arrested Saturday night near the scene of the crime in the Castro. Chan said the shootings appeared to be gang-related.

Individuals with any information on the Monday shooting can call the San Francisco Police Department's anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444.
