The Sacramento Bee reports
Police detained several people after a shooting that left two men dead and another wounded in San Francisco's Bernal Heights neighborhood.
San Francisco police said the shooting occurred Saturday night at about 7:20 p.m. near Holly Park Circle.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported that the two men who died were ages 21and 26. A 30-year-old man was wounded in the incident is expected to survive.
Police say the responding officers found the three men lying on the street and in a courtyard with gunshot wounds.
No other details were immediately available.
All right, let's see, no other details available, huh? How about we just take a guess.
1.The shooter was a legitimate gun owner frustrated about the draconian gun laws in his home state and these three young men just looked at him wrong.
2. It was a drug deal gone bad.  The guns involved all came from a gun show in Nevada, sold by a legitimate gun owner to these California gangsters.
3. It was self-defense. The shooter was one of those open-carry protesters with an unloaded gun on his belt.  After taking the magazine from his pocket, loading and racking the gun, shooting the three attackers, he began to wonder if he'd get in trouble by sticking around.  He decided to take off.
I can't think of any other possibilities, can you.
