A 17-year-old boy was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of shooting another teen in San Francisco’s Fillmore District last weekend, police said today. The shooting was reported at 4:01 p.m. Saturday near the intersection of Fillmore and Eddy streets. The 14-year-old victim was shot in the jaw but his injuries were not considered life-threatening, according to police.
Witnesses and officers from the department’s Northern Police Station had identified the suspect, and on Wednesday, investigators executed a search warrant at a home in the 600 block of Larch Street where they detained the 17-year-old and his stepfather, police said. A search of the premises uncovered ammunition and a .380-caliber gun in the teen’s room that matched the weapon used in the shooting, according to police.
Officers also found a stolen .45-caliber handgun, ammunition and marijuana in the room of the stepfather, 39-year-old Marcus Leslie, police said. The teen was booked into the Juvenile Justice Center on suspicion of attempted homicide and assault with a deadly weapon, while Leslie was booked in county jail on suspicion of being a convicted felon in possession of a handgun as well as possession of ammunition, police said.
