Pier 14 Shooting: San Francisco sanctuary city law discussed in 2008 triple murder


SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Before last week’s Pier 14 shooting, San Francisco’s sanctuary city policy made national headlines back in 2008 when undocumented immigrant Edwin Ramos shot and killed three innocent people in the Excelsior neighborhood.

Ramos was sentenced to three consecutive life sentences in prison.

He was convicted of fatally shooting Tony Bologna, and his two sons Michael and Matthew, while they were in their car headed home.

Prosecutors say Ramos thought one of the sons was a gang rival member.

Ramos had been arrested numerous times before the shooting for violent crimes but was never forced to go back to his home country of El Salvador despite his undocumented status.
