Men Plead Guilty in Killing of German Tourist

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Authorities say that four men who were indicted in 2011 in the killing of a German tourist who was visiting San Francisco when she was caught in gunfire pleaded guilty to lesser charges and will each serve between five and nine years in state prison.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the men reached plea agreements with the San Francisco district attorney’s office, which dropped the murder charges in exchange for guilty pleas on gun and assault charges in connection to the 2010 death of Mechthild Schröer, 50, an elementary school rector from Hanover, Germany. Authorities said Friday that the men are Phillip Stewart, 22; Delvon Scott, 22; Raheem Jackson, 20; and Willie Eason, 22.

Schröer was in town with her husband to celebrate her birthday and wedding anniversary when they were caught in gunfire, believed to have been exchanged between two rival gangs, at Mason and Geary streets on Aug. 8, 2010. Schröer was killed and two others injured.
