A 15-year-old boy died Sunday after he was shot near Seventh and Mission streets in San Francisco, police said.
The suspect, who allegedly led cops on a chase around the city, was identified as 41-year-old Bernard Hayes of San Francisco, SFPD said in a press release.
Officers were called to the South of Mission neighborhood at about 6:20 p.m. on Sunday. They found the unnamed victim suffering from apparent gunshot wounds and took him to a local hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.
Officers in the Tenderloin heard gunshots and observed a white sedan fleeing north on Seventh Street at a high speed, police said. They attempted to stop the vehicle, but it failed to yield and continued west along McAllister, police said.
The vehicle then reportedly collided with a pedestrian in the crosswalk of McAllister and Hyde streets. The pedestrian, a 40-year-old male, was taken to a local hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries.
The suspect also allegedly struck vehicles at 10th and Mission streets and 10th and Harrison streets. A victim at the latter intersection was treated for nonlife-threatening injuries.
At about 6:45 p.m., 20 minutes after the shooting, officers reported a white sedan crashing near 20th and Vermont streets and watched the driver flee on foot, police said. Officers later located the suspect in the foliage on the embankment of Highway 101 before he ran north on the side of the freeway then crossed into traffic toward the center median, police said.
Police pursued the subject on foot until he surrendered and was taken into custody without incident, police said.
Hayes now faces multiple charges, including murder, robbery, carrying a loaded firearm, felony hit and run and driving on a suspended license.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the SFPD Tip Line at 415-575-4444 or Text a Tip at TIP411 and begin the message with SFPD.
