Fourth S.F. shooting in 12 hours

A fourth shooting in 12 hours took place this morning near Alamo Square and sent one man to San Francisco General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The most recent shooting took place around 9:40 a.m. at the intersection of Fulton and Steiner streets, Sgt. Neville Gittens said.

Two suspects in a black car began shooting at two victims who were walking down the street. The victims began to run and one victim was shot three times. The other victim was not struck.

Both suspects were taken into custody and the Gang Task Force is handling the investigation, Gittens said. Police believe the suspects and victims know each other, although the connection may not be gang related.

The first shooting occurred Thursday in the 100 block of Taylor Street in the Tenderloin at around 9:20 p.m., according to a police dispatcher. A 31-year-old man was found with a gunshot wound to his arm.

At 10:06 p.m. police responded to reports of shots fired in the 1800 block of Sunnydale Avenue in the Visitacion Valley neighborhood, a dispatcher said. Police located a 29-year-old man who had been shot four times, once in each arm and twice in his chest.

About an hour later, at 11:10 p.m., police responded to a third shooting in the 1700 block of McKinnon Avenue in the city's Bayview District, police said. Officers found a 20-year-old man who had been shot once in the back.

All three men were taken to San Francisco General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to police.

Adding to the violence of the morning, officers responded to a fatal stabbing around 2:10 a.m. in the unit block of McAllister St., just one block from University of California's Hastings College of Law, police said.

The victim, a male in his 20s, had been stabbed multiple times and pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.
