Five injured in weekend shootings, stabbings

Three people were shot and two others were stabbed in San Francisco in five non-fatal incidents Saturday and early today, police reported.

The violence began in the Castro District just before 5 a.m. Saturday when one person was shot in the stomach near the intersection of Church and Market streets, police said.

The victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries that were not considered life threatening, police said.

The suspect, described only as a Hispanic male, fled on foot and has not been arrested.

Later Saturday, at about 6 p.m., a 15-year-old boy who had been standing on a street corner in the Mission Terrace District was reportedly stabbed in the left eye and hands, San Francisco police Officer Mike Baglin said.

The boy had been standing on the corner of Excelsior Avenue and Lisbon Street when the suspects approached him and reportedly yelled at him and then stabbed him, Baglin said.

The boy was taken to San Francisco General Hospital in stable condition, Baglin said.

At 2:24 a.m. today a male victim was shot in the leg in the 500 block of Barneveld Avenue. The victim had reportedly been in an argument in front ofa nightclub when a suspect fired at the crowd, striking the victim in the leg, Baglin said.

The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital. The suspect remains at large.

About half and hour later, at 3 a.m., a male victim was walking in the area of Sunnydale Avenue and Loehr Street when he heard what sounded like gunshots and then felt a pain in his left leg and realized he had been shot, Baglin said.

Ten minutes later, in the 100 block of Eddy Street, a male victim was stabbed in the neck during an argument. The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital in stable condition and the suspect was arrested, Baglin said.
