S.F. Anti-Violence Activist Slain Near Daughter's Basketball Game

Police have identified a man killed outside his daughter's high school basketball game as a San Francisco anti-violence activist and father of one of the country's leading young players.

A police spokesman says Terrell Rogers was shot multiple times while across the street from the Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory gymnasium during halftime Saturday night. No arrests were made.

Rogers' daughter Tierra Rogers is a heavily recruited junior guard for Sacred Heart, ranked by USA Today as the top high school girls basketball team in the country.

Terrell Rogers co-founded and headed a local nonprofit group that works to reduce violence in the city's Bayview-Hunters Point district.

Police would not discuss motives but said the 39-year-old father of two was likely the intended target.
