SAN FRANCISCO — Police officers have responded to more shootings in two violent San Francisco neighborhoods after the installation of sophisticated sound sensors that detect gunfire, according to a city analysis released Monday.
The analysis by the Mayor's Office of Criminal Justice found that the sensors recorded 65 percent more instances of gunfire in portions of the Bayview and Western Addition neighborhoods in March and April than were reported by people.
