Towerside posse Frederick “Ace” Glaspie, 27, and Marche Daniels, 25, were gunned down on Burr Avenue in the heart of Towerside’s territory.

22:53 |

Two men who were shot dead after a broad-daylight brawl in Visitacion Valley on Monday were both named in a 2010 city gang injunction, with one identified as a member of the notoriously vicious Towerside posse. Frederick “Ace” Glaspie, 27, and Marche Daniels, 25, were gunned down on Burr Avenue in the heart of Towerside’s territory. An injunction means a person is barred from a neighborhood known to The City to house a gang, but in this case the restriction was only given to Glaspie even though Daniels also was named in the injunction. In October 2008, according to the City Attorney’s Office, Daniels had survived an afternoon shooting at Sunnydale and Garrison avenues. That day, police said, he was accompanied to the hospital by Diondre Young, another Towerside member who lost his life to gun violence earlier this year. Since the death of Young, who was found in Rincon Hill on March 30, six more men have been fatally shot in Visitacion Valley. And one other who was killed elsewhere has been connected to the neighborhood. Additionally, there have been several nonfatal shootings. One of the homicides occurred Sunday when an 18-year-old who also was connected to Burr Avenue was found shot dead in Diamond Heights about 9:40 a.m., police said. Police have not said whether the recent killings are linked. But in response to the violence, more plainclothes and uniformed cops have been deployed to the neighborhood, police Officer Albie Esparza said. However, the violence has apparently persisted. About 10 p.m. Monday, police said, a drive-by shooting occurred at Sunnydale Avenue and Rey Street, only blocks from where Glaspie and Daniels were killed. The gunfire was aimed at a group of people standing on the sidewalk, police said, but the bullets only struck a passing SUV and no one was injured. No arrests have been made in connection with either of Monday’s shootings, police said. Suspect descriptions were vague. If necessary, Esparza said, more police sources might be pulled from around The City to deal with the flare-up. Police will act as peacekeepers as much as enforcers, trying to hash out differences between feuding groups, Esparza said. The violence has caught the attention of City Hall. Mayor Ed Lee has suggested looking into the possibility of a stop-and-frisk policy that would be similar to the one used in New York City. That idea has been rejected by the Board of Supervisors over civil liberty concerns.
