JUDGE WILL SUBPOENA NIXON Gunmen Kill 4 Persons At Random SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) — j Plack gunmen traveling in a large black automobile, shot and killed four white persons at random Monday night on the streets of San Francisco. A young mother of a 4-month-, old son also was shot apparently without reason but is expected to live, although doctors say she probably will be paralyzed from the waist down. “It seems to be the work of more than one person,” said 1 Chief of Inspectors Charles Barca, who took personal charge of the investigation. Same Group? Police noted similarities to ai 10-day outbreak of street shootings last month that killed six persons and wounded two others, although they would not definitely say the gunmen were from the same group. “There’s no rhyme or riddle to it," Patrolman William Wakefield remarked while discuss-1 ing the difficulties of trying to catch the silent shoot-and-run marksmen. Witnesses gave varying descriptions of the gunmen but noted that in almost every case the man with the hand gun merely walked out and started .shooting without saying a word.
