Four people injured in separate SF shootings since Friday

Four people were injured by gunfire in unrelated shootings since Friday across San Francisco, police said.

Early Sunday, a woman was fighting with her boyfriend inside a Western Addition residence when she called someone to “help her deal with her boyfriend,” police said.

When her backup arrived around 3:13 a.m., he kicked open the door to the residence on Larch Street near Van Ness Avenue, police said. The man waited for the woman’s 29-year-old boyfriend to come outside and then shot him in the chest with a handgun.

The gunman fled the scene. The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital and is expected to survive.

About an hour later Sunday, a 19-year-old woman was shot in the leg at Golden Gate Park while a party was breaking up, police said.

The woman was just south of 40th Avenue near Chain of Lakes Drive when an unknown person fired a single bullet, striking her. She was uncooperative with police and taken to SFGH for treatment.

Later in the Mission on Sunday, a 26-year-old man was in a vehicle at 20th and Mission streets when he was shot, police said.

The man was taken home before police were called. He was uncooperative when officers arrived at the scene around 5 a.m., police said. The man was treated at SFGH for a gunshot wound to his leg.

On Friday, a Muni bus driver was almost struck during a shooting in the Mid-Market area that injured a 28-year-old man, police said.

The bullet entered the driver’s side window and missed the driver as the Muni bus headed from McAllister Street onto Market Street around 11:20 p.m., police said.

It was unclear whether anyone had been hit until the wounded man checked into San Francisco General Hospital with a gunshot wound to his foot. He was uncooperative with police.

No arrests were made in any of the four shootings.
