A 19-year-old man was injured in a shooting early Sunday morning while talking with a friend on a Mission district street corner.

The incident occurred at 1:40 a.m. at 18th and Mission streets, according to San Francisco Police  Department Sgt. Michael Andraychak. The victim and his friend were standing outside when the suspect walked up, pulled out a gun and started shooting, Andraychak said, adding that the victim and his friend ran to 18th and Valencia streets. The suspect fled.
