Two people were shot last night at a memorial vigil for the young man shot to death at San Francisco’s Pink Saturday street party in the Castro.
The shooting was reported at about 8 p.m. near the intersection of Third Street and Quesada Avenue during a neighborhood vigil being held for 19-year-old Stephen Powell, who was shot and killed Saturday during Gay Pride in the city’s Castro District, Officer Samson Chan said. One victim, a 21-year-old man, was shot through the cheek, Chan said, and the other victim, a 20-year-old man, was shot in the leg. Both victims were taken to the hospital. Their injuries were not expected to be life threatening. Witnesses were not forthcoming with information, Chan said, and police did not release any details regarding possible suspects early this morning.
The young man accused of Saturday’s shooting remains in custody on a murder charge.
