Press conference on the murder of Barry Fong-Torres
KRON-TV news footage from June 26 1972 featuring scenes from a press conference with SFPD's Lieutenant Charles Ellis, who talks about "gangland style murders" and places the murder of youth worker Barry Fong-Torres in that context. Fong-Torres was shot to death at point-blank range on the doorstep of his apartment on 16th Avenue in the Sunset District, the day before he was scheduled to appear on a KGO radio interview about Chinese youth gangs. Also includes brief views of street life in Chinatown. Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
