Fatal shooting in San Fran’s Castro District before Pride Parade

From the San Francisco Chronicle;

One of three victims of a shooting in San Francisco's Castro District late Saturday night has died from his injuries, according to the medical examiner's office.

Stephen Powell, 19, was shot in the torso about 11:30 p.m. at Market and Castro streets during the city's “Pink Saturday” celebrations, police said. The medical examiner's office could not confirm his city of residence.

Powell, along with a 19-year-old woman and a 29-year-old man who were shot in the leg, were taken to a hospital. Powell was subsequently pronounced dead.

The woman and older man are expected to survive, according to police.

A 19-year-old man was taken into custody in connection with the shooting, and police said they recovered the handgun used in the crime.

No word yet on motive, but word is that the shooter and the victims were acquanted.  Another reminder why we need to push for our rights and create truly safe spaces to be ourselves.
