Five struck in separate shootings in Mission, Hunters Point

Five struck in separate shootings in Mission, Hunters Point

Two unrelated shootings in the Mission district late Monday and one in Hunters Point early Tuesday wounded five people, police said.

Around 8:53 p.m., three unknown shooters armed with semi-automatic handguns and a shotgun pulled up in a van in front of a house on Treat Avenue near Cesar Chavez Street, opening fire.

A 26-year-old man was shot in the foot and a bullet grazed a 36-year-old man’s thigh. The younger man was standing near the house when he was struck. The older man showed up at San Francisco General Hospital later that night, reportedly wounded during the same shooting.

Both are expected to survive.

The suspects fled in the silver van. No arrests have been made or detailed suspect descriptions released.

In a separate shooting several hours later, two men were standing at a bus stop at 24th and Mission streets when unknown gunmen shot them around 11:48 p.m., police said.

A 36-year-old man was struck in the leg. The other man, 55, was hit multiple times in the chest, leg and foot. Both men were treated at SFGH and neither have injuries considered life threatening.

The 36-year-old man refused to speak with police about the shooting, however, the second man said they were near 24th and Mission streets when he heard gunfire and realized he’d been hit.

Police have not released further information.

Then early Tuesday around 1:30 a.m., a 32-year-old man and his friends were walking down a staircase on Kiska Road near Reardon Road, in Hunters Point, when they heard gunshots.

The man was shot in the elbow. He was “very uncooperative” with police and taken to SFGH, police said.

The suspected shooter is unknown.

FILE — Mort Sahl on Nov. 10, 1967. Sahl, who confronted Eisenhower-era cultural complacency with acid stage monologues, delivering biting social commentary in the guise of a stand-up comedian and thus changing the nature of both stand-up comedy and social commentary, died on Tuesday, Oct. 26, 2021, at his home in Mill Valley, Calif., near San Francisco. He was 94. (Don Hogan Charles/The New York Times)
