For all of you grouching about being cold and wet, here's this gem from New Year's. According to some of our snitches:

11:40 a.m. on Monday morning (12/31/07) at Brookdale Ave./Santos St. (Visitacion Valley area). Several people had been wounded in a drive-by shooting. One of the victims, a 30 yr. old Black male, died at the scene. It was reported that he was shielding his 9 yr. old daughter who received a grazing wound to the thigh. SFPD reported that there were 3 other male victims (no other information was available for this report) who were transported to SFGH ED. Witnesses reported that a maroon 4-door sedan with 4 male suspects drove by the victims. One of the suspects fired several rounds from the vehicle as it sped off.
