A photo is going viral of a woman in San Francisco.
Amid an increase in crime, the image shows a woman leaning out of a moving car holding an AK-47.
Police have reported an increase in shootings and assaults in the city during the first six months of the year, Fox News reported.
“The city reported 119 shootings, both fatal and non-fatal, for the first six months of 2021, compared to 58 in the first half of last year,” the report says.
“During an illegal exhibition of speed event at Barneveld & McKinnon, a passenger leaned out of a Cadi holding an AK47; see photo. SFPD Traffic Company personnel worked up a case, and seized this particular vehicle today,” the San Francisco Police Department wrote on Twitter, accompanied by photos.
“The incident is being investigated by the SFPD Stunt Driving Response Unit and the SFPD Traffic Company,” the San Francisco Police Department told Fox News, adding they could not comment further as it is an active investigation.
“We’re almost double where we were in the last two years, and that is a huge concern,” Police Chief Bill Scott told reporters.
