Three arrested after Castro fight, shooting

Three people were arrested Thursday morning, August 7 after a fight at a Castro district club ended in shots being fired into someone’s car, according to San Francisco police.

The 2:45 a.m. incident started as an argument at a club at 18th and Collingwood streets then escalated, Officer Gordon Shyy, a spokesman for the San Francisco Police Department, said in a summary.

After the three suspects struck the victim, a 38-year-old man, he tried to enter his vehicle and flee, Shyy said. One of the suspects, Ava Sasso, 25, of San Francisco, allegedly used a handgun to shoot into the victim’s vehicle. Jason and Terrance Hill, 33 and 29, respectively, of Oakland, were the other two people arrested, police said. According to the sheriff’s department, none of the three was in custody as of Thursday afternoon. They couldn’t be reached for comment. The victim was not injured.

Alex Bastian, a spokesman for the district attorney’s office, said Friday, August 8 that Terrance Hill is not being charged due to “insufficient evidence.”

Jason Hill is being charged with a felony count of negligent discharge of a firearm, along with two counts of possession of a firearm and single counts of exhibiting a weapon and vandalism, Bastian said. The latter charges are misdemeanors.

Prosecutors have moved to revoke Sasso’s probation, a sentence she’d received for driving under the influence, Bastian said.

The club The Edge, 4149 18th Street; Toad Hall, 4146 18th Street; and Badlands, 4121 18th Street are all in the immediate vicinity of where the fight occurred. Edge co-owner Rob Giljum said in a phone message that the fight had not occurred in his club. Calls to the other two bars weren’t immediately returned. Booking photos of the three suspects have not been released.
