Pacifica Islander football player shot

Former Lincoln High School football standout David Henderson was in stable but critical condition Saturday afternoon at San Francisco General Hospital after he sustained a gunshot wound to the head Thursday in the Bayview neighborhood.

The coach for the semi-pro Pacifica Islanders — where Henderson had been playing in recent months — said the team is reeling from the incident.

“Football is no longer an issue right now,” said Tom Piccolotti, Islanders coach and general manager, whose team has the weekend off before finishing the regular season next week. “We’re more concerned about David and his family.”

Piccolotti said Henderson was on life support, surrounded by family at the hospital.

San Francisco police reported Friday morning that a man in his 20s had been shot at about noon Thursday in the 1400 block of Kirkwood Avenue, but they did not release the victim’s name.
