17-Year-old boy fatally shot in Potrero Hill

A 17-year-old boy was shot dead Wednesday night in San Francisco’s Potrero Hill neighborhood, police said Thursday.

The victim, identified by the Medical Examiner’s Office as Grady Anderson, was shot at about 7:20 p.m. in the 1600 block of 25th Street.

According to police, officers nearby heard gunshots and then found the victim. Anderson was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he died.

The Medical Examiner’s Office has not yet determined where Anderson lived.

The shooting is the second in two days in that same area. On Tuesday, a 20-year-old man was shot while parking his car on 26th Street near Connecticut Street at about 9:45 p.m.

The man survived the shooting, which police said was believed to be gang-related.
