Early morning Tenderloin shooting leaves man fighting for his life

A 34-year-old man is fighting for his life after sustaining a gunshot wound in the Tenderloin early Thursday morning, police said.

The man got into an argument with the suspect before the suspect, another man, shot the victim around 4 a.m. in the 1200 block of Market Street, according to police.

The suspect then fled north on Hyde Street.

The victim was transported to a local hospital with life threatening injuries.

Meanwhile, a 49-year-old man was stabbed in the neck – possibly with a screwdriver – about an hour before and just blocks from the shooting, police said.

That incident occurred just after 3 a.m. in the 900 block of Market Street. It was not immediately clear what led to the stabbing, but the victim was found bleeding from the neck on Market Street.
He was taken to a local hospital and is expected to survive.
