6-year-old boy injured in Bayview shooting

A 6-year-old boy was injured in one of two shootings that hospitalized three people on Tuesday, according to police.

Police said a 21-year-old man and a 6-year-old boy were inside a vehicle near Oakdale Avenue and Baldwin Court just before 3 p.m. when a driver pulled up to their vehicle and started shooting.

The suspect driver, described as a man between 19 and 25 years old, drove away and remains at large, according to police.

Although the older victim was injured, he was able to drive himself and the boy to a hospital.

The two victims are related, police said. Both were in stable condition as of Wednesday morning.

Police are also investigating a second shooting after a 31-year-old man arrived at a hospital with gunshot wounds around 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

The man’s injuries were not considered life-threatening.

Details about the shooting are still unclear, including where it occurred, police spokesman Officer Robert Rueca said.

Anyone with information about either shooting is encouraged to call the Police Department’s tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” at the start of the message.Crime
