Two injured in separate Mission District shootings


Separate shootings on Tuesday in San Francisco’s Mission District left two people with gunshot wounds, one whose injuries are considered life-threatening, police said.

The first shooting occurred around 11:45 a.m. near 23rd and Hampshire streets.

The victim, a 33 year-old woman, was outside of a house when an unknown object hit her. She then collapsed to the ground and a good Samaritan called 911, according to police.

Medical personnel transported the woman to a hospital, where it was discovered that she had suffered life-threatening injuries from a gunshot wound.

Police did not provide a description of a suspect in the shooting.

The second shooting occurred around 7:30 p.m. between two people inside cars near the corner of Shotwell and 16th streets.

According to police, the victim, a 19-year-old man, was in a vehicle stopped at a stoplight when another vehicle with two people inside pulled up alongside.

One of the suspects then shot at the victim. Police described the suspects as a man and a woman, both in their 20s. Officers were unable to locate the suspects and their vehicle.

Police initially on Tuesday said the victim suffered life-threatening injuries, but now say he is expected to survive.

Anyone with information about either shooting is encouraged to call the Police Department’s tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to text a tip to TIP411 with “SFPD” at the beginning of the message. People providing tips have the option of remaining anonymous.
