(01-13) 15:28 PST -- San Francisco Police are asking for information about who shot and killed two people in front of a child and baby Friday night in the Mission Terrace neighborhood.

"This is a very tragic situation," said Sgt. Neville Gittens, a police spokesman. "It occurred in front of two young kids. The person responsible for this has no regard for his actions. It's tragic."

Officers responding to reports of gunfire shortly after 10 Friday night found a man and a woman dead inside a car in the 200 block of Still Street at Badger Street, near Interstate 280, Gittens said. The two children, unharmed in the car, are a young boy and a baby girl. They are in the custody of Child Protective Services.

Gittens said police don't yet know how the children are related to the victims, but police believe the victims knew the assailant.

Witnesses told police they saw a man running away after the shots were fired, Gittens said, and asked that anyone with information about the shooting call (415) 575-4444, the Police Department's anonymous tip line.

(01-13) 15:54 PST SAN FRANCISCO -- A man and a woman were found shot to death in San Francisco this morning in what police believe was murder-suicide, according to Sgt. Neville Gittens.

The two were found at a home in the 300 block of Vienna Street in the Excelsior district. Gittens said family members of the victims, who lived in the same home, heard shots around 4 a.m. but didn't investigate. They reportedly found the woman, 42, and the man, 47, dead at around 8:45 a.m.

"We believe the male shot the female, and then shot himself," Gittens said, adding the investigation is in its preliminary stages.

(01-12) SAN FRANCISCO -- The charred body of a black female was found at 5:30 p.m. Friday on a boat ramp on Carroll Avenue near Candlestick Point, San Francisco police said.

The death appeared to be the result of a homicide, although there was no information as to how or where the woman died. Police had no information Friday evening on the age or other details of the woman.
