Gun Carrying Victim Not a Victim in Tenderloin Robbery Attempt
It seems that on tuesday around 4am at Turk and Leavenworth, three guys with guns — one a sawed-off shotgun — tried to rob someone who was unlucky enough to be at the wrong place at the wrong time in the Tenderloin. Except the intended victim, when openly threatened with the shotgun, pulled out a gun of their own and shot all three would-be assailants. According to witnesses, six shots were fired, and news reports confirm that all three robbers were wounded, none fatally. I think this story is incredibly interesting. No one knows who the non-victim was. Could it be that we now have our own Bernie Goetz here in SF?
