Mother killed in Bayview shooting identified
A 32-year-old woman who was fatally shot, reportedly in front of her children, in San Francisco’s Bayview District on Tuesday afternoon has been identified.
San Francisco resident Maria Soza was shot and killed in the 1200 block of Revere Avenue near Ingalls Street, according to the medical examiner’s office.
A ShotSpotter gunshot detection system alert was activated at the intersection at 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, San Francisco police Officer Grace Gatpandan said. Moments later, police received a 911 call reporting that a female had been shot there.
Gatpandan said witnesses reported that Soza’s children saw their mother get struck with gunfire.
Arriving officers found Soza suffering from multiple gunshot wounds on the sidewalk near the intersection, Gatpandan said. The officers performed CPR on her and transported her to San Francisco General Hospital, where she died of her injuries, according to Gatpandan.
At 4:24 p.m., less than 10 minutes later, two shooting victims were reported in the 200 block of Bayshore Boulevard. According to an employee at The Old Clam House restaurant, located at 299 Bayshore Blvd., the female victim drove the male victim to the restaurant and then came into the restaurant to get help.
The employee, who declined to be named, said she called 911 and emergency crews responded to the restaurant. The male victim, identified as 38-year-old San Francisco resident Donte Glenn, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.
Police said the female victim also suffered gunshot wounds but is expected to survive. The two crime scenes are possibly related and remain under investigation, police said.
