Walter Simon — the crack dealer in a wheelchair — and his lover's leaden heart

The Chron recently reported that an alleged Tenderloin crack dealer in a wheelchair, Walter Simon, is getting brought up on weapons charges after being involved in a gunfight in April. None of the stories I’ve read about this case mention its most cinematic aspect: When someone rolled up on Simon and started shooting, his girlfriend jumped in front of him and took three bullets in her side, according to an April 14 search warrant affidavit (Page 1, 2, 3, 4). Now that’s love!
