Defensive Gun Use in San Francisco?
Police say the three first tried to rob a man at 3:30 a.m. at Turk and Leavenworth streets, but he was able to escape. The man then watched as the suspects confronted a couple and tried to grab a backpack from them, police said.
The man with the backpack pulled a gun and shot the three, police said. One man was wounded in the leg and was quickly arrested, and a second man wounded in the arm and buttocks was found around the corner.
The third man, wounded in the buttocks and groin, went to the Tenderloin Task Force police station for help.
"You've got to go somewhere," Inspector John Peterson said. "Where he was shot, he needed the help.''
The three men each were charged with two counts of attempted robbery. Their names were not immediately released. . . . .
