A man who was fatally shot in San Francisco’s Bayview District this morning has been identified by the San Francisco medical examiner’s office as 24-year-old Kerry Dawson.Dawson was apparently sitting in the driver’s seat of a Ford Fusion at the intersection of Revere Avenue and Hawes Street at around 1:15 a.m. when he was shot multiple times, San Francisco police Officer Albie Esparza said.Dawson, who police believe was shot 12 to 15 times based on shell casings found at the scene of the shooting, managed to drive about 3 blocks before he crashed. He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital where he was pronounced dead at about 1:45 a.m.A preliminary investigation indicated that bullet shells came from .38- and .45-caliber handguns, Esparza said. Dawson was a known gang member and the homicide is being  investigated as a gang-related killing, Esparza said. No arrests have been made as of noontime, he said.Dawson was one of two men arrested for at least two robberies that occurred in the Bayview District in September 2007. Dawson was arrested on Sept. 29, 2007, while his alleged partner in the robberies, Daniel Dennard, was arrested on a $1 million warrant two weeks later in Daly City.

  • My name is Racquitta Taylor. My son Roderick Donelson was shot and killed on 12.2.10 on Visitacion San Francisco.I am a mother who is very upset with the SFPD homicide detectives because i have giving them the name of the young man who shot my son but, still no arrest have been made. My son was only 18 and his life is over but, the young man who did this is still walking the streets freely to kill again.
