San Francisco sues illegal hotel where gunfight ended party

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The city of San Francisco is suing a couple for allegedly turning their home into an illegal hotel where a party held by guests last year ended in a shootout that sent partygoers fleeing from rooftop to rooftop and terrified neighbors.

City Attorney Dennis Herrera said Wednesday he has sued Erik M. Rogers and his wife, Anshu Singh, for unlawfully renting their Bernal Heights home through short-term rental websites for at least 319 nights during a 17-month period.

Police say more than 100 bullets were fired on October 2017 during party at the house. The shootout left a person wounded and more than a dozen homes and cars pierced by bullets in the quiet, residential neighborhood.

Rogers and Singh didn’t immediately respond to emails from The Associated Press seeking comment.
