A Modesto man was shot and killed early Sunday outside a nightclub in San Francisco’s Japantown neighborhood, authorities said.
David Gilford III, 36, was standing on the sidewalk on the 1800 block of Post Street when shots rang out about 1:45 a.m., according to police and the medical examiner’s office. Numerous people called police, and the department’s ShotSpotter system also detected gunfire, authorities said.
Gilford was shot in the chest and face, police said. First responders performed CPR, but he died at San Francisco General Hospital. The shooting, which happened across from the Sundance Kabuki Cinemas, happened as patrons left a nearby nightclub, said Sgt. Danielle Newman, a San Francisco police spokeswoman.
