The San Francisco Police Department has released more detailed descriptions of the two men suspected in the shooting at the city’s LGBT Pride festival Sunday, June 30. Two Pride vendors sustained non-life threatening injuries.

Police are describing the first suspect, the man who had the handgun, as a black male between the ages of 20 and 28, approximately 5 feet 6 inches tall, and weighing approximately 130 pounds. His hair was in corn rows and he was last seen wearing a white tank top and dark baggie shorts.

The second suspect, who accompanied the other suspect during the incident, is described as a black male in his early 20’s wearing a baggie white T-shirt.

In the news release issued Wednesday (July 3), police said the incident started when several people became involved in an altercation at the intersection of Larkin and Grove Streets. 

“One of the subjects involved in the altercation pulled out a handgun and fired it several times,” police said. No surveillance video or photographs are available yet.

The two victims, who were working at the Tropicana Hotel booth, were transported to San Francisco General Hospital. One man was released Sunday night, and police indicated the other man has been released, as well.  Swirl Radio is raising funds to help the victims.
