CCSF student killed in Sunset District

By Ken S. Akehurst III

A student’s father is seeking information after his son, a City College student, was shot and killed on the night of Sept. 18 in the Outer Sunset District by an unknown assailant, a Sept. 19 Chronicle dispatch reported.

    Ryan Sacdalan, 20, was found alone at the corner of 46th Street and Moraga Avenue with at least two gunshot wounds to the back after gunshots rang in the neighborhood at 8:53 p.m, a Sept. 18 KTVU dispatch reported.

    The KTVU dispatch stated that a neighbor said they saw a man running down the street in a hoodie soon after the shots were fired, but he heard no argument or words exchanged beforehand that indicated a reason for the shooting.

    John Rodriguez told the Chronicle said he saw the suspect, dressed in  jeans and white sneakers, running toward a dark-colored car, yelling, “We gotta go.” Then, the car raced down 46th Avenue, he told the Chronicle.

    Passersby stopped and helped render aid to Sacdalan until paramedics arrived; the police had outlined 11 circles where bullet casings were found along with shattered glass from a car nearby, the Chronicle reported.

    Police have yet to identify a suspect or motive for the shooting; authorities declined to comment on this ongoing investigation, the Chronicle reported. If you have any tips or information, please contact the Taraval Police Station at (415) 242-9753 or in-person at 2345 24th Ave., San Francisco, CA 94116.
