SF: Three Men Arrested In Anti-Gay Drive-By BB Gun Shooting

If you think it's hilarious to drive around shooting a BB gun at suspected homos, you probably shouldn't videotape yourself doing it.
The victim of Friday's attack was walking on the 3200 block of 16th Street near Guerrero Street about 10 p.m. when a car pulled up and someone inside opened fire with a BB rifle, police said. The man was hit in the face but refused medical treatment, said Lt. Lyn Tomioka, spokeswoman for the Police Department. He reported the shooting to police, who pulled over a car that matched the assailants' vehicle a short distance away and arrested the three Hayward men. Investigators believe the assailants chose the victim because he appeared to be gay. When the men were pulled over, police found a video camera that was used to film the shooting, investigators said. Assistant District Attorney Victor Hwang, the prosecutor in the case, said the men are cooperating in the investigation.
Police are asking for other victims to come forward.
