The Castro district’s Halloween party turned bloody last night when an unidentified ghoul decided to do a little shooting.
A freelance security guard says the shooting started around 10:40pm when he heard “heard someone empty their gun” and the crowd of thousands began to disperse. When police arrived at the scene, they found seven victims – two of which have life-threatening injuries. As they pieced stories together, two more victims were found.
Once a spontaneous, unsanctioned party, the city took over the legendary Halloween festival in 2002 as part of an effort to curb violence. Needless to say, it hasn’t worked.
While there are no known subjects, people have reported that the event draws a fair amount of homo-haters. Of course, one can never discredit a disgruntled queen.
