With the sweet, sometimes comes the sour.
No sooner had the New York Times run that charming article about the charms of Bernal’s St. Mary’s Park microhood than the local newspapers began reporting on a bizarre homicide that happened on Friday bight in a home on Justin Drive, in St. Mary’s. From the San Francisco Chronicle:
(12-12) 12:24 PST SAN FRANCISCO — A 72-year-old woman was found dead Friday night with a blood-covered suspect at the scene in San Francisco’s Bernal Heights neighborhood, San Francisco police said. The medical examiner identified the woman as Hao Mei Wu of San Francisco.
Police were called to the 200 block of Justin Drive around 10:30 p.m. to assist San Francisco fire officers who were already on scene, police spokesman Albie Esparza said.
Wu was found unconscious on the floor. Authorities said they also found a suspect, whose identity has not been released, at the scene with blood on him.
The suspect suffered self-inflicted wounds and was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, Esparza said.
