The San Francisco Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating the suspect in a shooting that occurred yesterday, Thursday, February 4, on the 4000 block of 19th Avenue at approximately 9:00 A.M.

The suspect, Yuji Baba, 67, of San Francisco, allegedly shot the victim, a family member, over a business dispute, and fled. The victim suffered a non-life threatening injury. Baba is 5’4”, 143 lbs. He is in possession of a black semi-automatic handgun and is considered dangerous. He was last seen wearing a black jacket.
