San Francisco, CA – Today, San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins announced that Javier Campos (23) of Richmond has been charged in connection to a mass shooting in the Mission District that occurred on June 9, 2023. Mr. Campos is charged with one count of discharging a firearm from a motor vehicle and causing great bodily injury (PC 26100(c), PC 12022.53(d)), eight counts of assault with a semi-automatic firearm and causing great bodily injury (PC 245(b), PC 12022.7(a)), and three counts of unlawful firearm possession. The criminal complaint also alleges that the crimes were committed for the benefit of a criminal street gang (PC 186.22), and that Mr. Campos committed these crimes while released on bail in another case.
“The Mission District shooting was horrifying and once again demonstrates the horrors of gun violence,” said District Attorney Brooke Jenkins. “My office will continue to prosecute these types of acts to the fullest extent. Brazen shootings like this one exact a heavy toll on our neighborhoods and communities.”
According to the San Francisco Police Department, on June 9, 2023, at approximately 9:07 P.M., San Francisco Police officers from Mission Station responded to the area of 24th and Treat Streets for a report of a shooting. When officers arrived on scene, they located multiple victims suffering from gunshot wounds. Officers summoned medics to the scene to treat and transport the victims to a local area hospital. A total of nine victims were struck by gunfire during the incident.
Mr. Campos is scheduled to be arraigned on Friday, December 15, 2023, in Department 10 of the Hall of Justice at 1:30PM. Prosecutors will file a motion to detain him pending trial because of the public safety risk he poses. If convicted of all charges and all allegations are found to be true, he faces life in state prison.
