Four shootings mark violent 12 hours in SF

Four separate shootings across San Francisco on Tuesday and early Wednesday morning left three men injured and a fourth shaken after the front of his house was shot up, according to police.

The first shooting happened in Visitacion Valley at 5:25 p.m. Tuesday. The 67-year-old resident of a home near 3200 San Bruno Avenue heard someone ring his doorbell and yell before opening fire with a handgun. The shots broke his living room window and struck a door in the rear of the house.

The victim was uninjured, and the suspect — believed to be in his late 30s — has not been arrested.

Later that night in the Outer Mission, a 28-year-old man was shot at a bus stop. No arrest has been made in the 10:38 p.m. shooting, and the victim is in stable condition after being taken to a hospital.

Early Wednesday morning, a 23-year-old man was shot in the Tenderloin after an argument. At 12:04 a.m. the victim got into an argument with two men near UN Plaza. The argument escalated and both suspects opened fire with pistols. The victim, who is in stable condition, was hit in the torso.

One arrest has been made in connection with that incident.

At 4:17 a.m. Wednesday, a 39-year-old man was shot four times while sitting inside a car in the Mission District.

The victim, who was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive, was shot at six times by an unknown assailant at Shotwell and 16th streets. The suspect was on foot during the shooting but is suspected of fleeing in a black SUV toward the East Bay.

Another shooting just across the border of San Francisco in north Daly City sent one man to the hospital early Wednesday morning.

Officers responded to the unit block of Vendome Avenue at 12:30 a.m. on reports of gunshots, where they found a man in his early 20s suffering from a single gunshot wound to the abdomen, police said.

The man was taken to a hospital where he was treated for his injury and was reported in stable condition, according to police.

Bay City News Service contributed to this report.
