2 held in shooting of girl in have prior arrests

Court records show the two men being held in the shooting of an 11-year-old girl in San Francisco have a history of arrests for alleged property crime.

Nineteen-year-old Lazarus Thomas of Daly City and 20-year-old Caprice Shadon Mitchell are accused in the shooting late Friday night in the city's Western Addition neighborhood that left Linda Ngo with a life-threatening wound. Police say the men were in an argument when one of them pulled a weapon and opened fire.

A stray bullet went through a nearby apartment and hit Ngo in the chest.

Thomas and Mitchell have been booked on suspicion of assault, shooting into an inhabited dwelling and brandishing a firearm.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Thomas was sentenced last week for a second-degree burglary conviction. Mitchell has been arrested before on suspicion of burglary, but not convicted.
