Three Hayward men, accused of shooting a man because they thought he was gay, will make their first appearance in court on Thursday.

The victim was walking in the Mission District Friday when a car pulled up and someone inside opened fire with a B.B. gun.

The man was hit in the face, but refused medical treatment.

He called police who quickly arrested the three men.

Police believe the 23-year-old suspects, all cousins, targeted the victim because they thought he was gay.

Police say they found a video camera in their possession that was used to film the attack.

Police are asking others to come forward if they were victims of similar attacks.
