SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — CHP San Francisco said that a gun was stolen from a California Highway Patrol officer’s personal vehicle on Sunday.
According to police, the gun was the CHP officer’s personal weapon.
The officer’s car was parked at 8th and Howard streets in San Francisco’s SoMa neighborhood.
CHP said the gun was stolen from inside a backpack.
The incident comes days after SFPD officials said that the gun used in the double murders of a yoga teacher and a Canadian tourist was stolen from a car parked near Fisherman’s Wharf.
Their deaths followed the July 1 high-profile shooting death of Kate Steinle as she visited the crowded Pier 14 with her father and family friend. The gun used in Steinle’s homicide was stolen from the car belonging to a Federal Bureau of Land Management agent during a business trip in San Francisco.
No arrests have been made, and the weapon has not been found.
