SFPD: Man arrested in connection to recent shooting on Golden Gate Avenue
A man was arrested in connection to a recent shooting on Golden Gate Avenue in San Francisco, according to police.
On the evening of Tuesday, September 14, narcotics officers in the area of Jones Street and Golden Gate Avenue reportedly heard several gunshots nearby. Officers from the Tenderloin station responded to the scene and located a 37-year-old man who’d suffered a gunshot wound to the leg, police said. The victim was treated at an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Officers soon spotted two individuals walking way from the area along Golden Gate Avenue and attempted to make contact. One of them stayed put and was later released pending further investigation, while the other — later identified as 21-year-old Lawrence Brussard, and the primary suspect in the shooting — tried to flee on foot.
Officers chased Brussard to the 400 block of Larkin Street, where they were able to take him into custody. He was ultimately booked on suspicion of assault with a firearm, carrying a loaded firearm in public, and other charges.
