Students at June Jordan School joined together to create a peace circle on Wednesday following a shooting involving four students. As many as four suspects opened fire in a campus parking lot on Tuesday, injuring four students in the process. Police are still searching for the suspects as the victims recover from their injuries.

BART says it is still planning to open its new Warm Springs extension this fall. Originally, BART intended to open it in 2014, but delays pushed it back to this summer. Now, a fall opening has been confirmed, but an official date was not set. If it debuts before the November election, voters may be more encouraged to approve the $3.5 million bond measure for BART on the ballot. However, the extension still needs to be tested before it can be opened. – SFC

Three firefighters were injured while combatting a blaze in the Castro District earlier this morning. It started shortly after midnight on Hattie Street and was upgraded to a second-alarm fire. The building's seven residents were able to escape without injuries, and the Red Cross is helping displaced individuals find housing. The fire was eventually contained around 2 a.m., and officials are now looking into the cause of the blaze. – CBSSF

The Luxor Cab Company, which has been operating in San Francisco since 1928, has been voted into The City’s Legacy Business Registry. This status makes the company eligible for funding to sustain its business, and it is now recognized as a part of San Francisco history. The San Francisco Historic Preservation Commission is responsible for unanimously voting Luxor into the registry. “I have to say, Luxor, you’re the only [transportation company] that knew where I lived!” said Commissioner Ellen Johnck. – SFE

  • One Hayward police officer is receiving praise for helping a woman who was living in her vehicle with her children. Officer Jonathan Mcleod pulled over the woman near a McDonalds close to Interstate 880 when she said the car was all she had. “We go from shelter to shelter,” she told Mcleod, emphasizing that she could not afford to lose her license. He proceeded to take her family into the McDonalds and purchase them meals.
  • Four Hayward fire personnel are being applauded for their efforts to rescue an individual who was falling from the Golden Gate Bridge during Fleet Week celebrations. Fire Captain Dan Wuerthner, Apparatus Operator Ethan Kochis, and Apparatus Operator Rob Frank were off-duty when they worked quickly to recover the individual, who plunged into the water. He was tended to by medical personnel after he was brought to shore.
  • A new study suggests that a previously unknown strand of the Hayward Fault is connected to a less active fault. However, a magnitude-7.4 earthquake could be produced if they both broke at the same time, according to scientists. The Hayward Fault runs under highly populated areas of east San Francisco.
