Man shot during attempted robbery in the Tenderloin

A man was shot in an attempted robbery in the Tenderloin on Sunday, police said.

The 25-year-old victim was talking to another man in the vicinity of Golden Gate Avenue and Leavenworth Street about 9:10 p.m. when a silver car pulled up, police said.

Inside the vehicle were a man and woman, and one of them told the victim to empty his pockets, police said. The victim told police he saw one of the suspects pull a long gun out of the trunk and so he fled the scene.

As he was running away, the suspects shot at him, striking him in the lower torso, police said.

The man was hospitalized but his injuries were not life-threatening.

No arrests were made, and there was little description available on the suspects except that the woman appeared to be in her 30s. The vehicle they were driving was described as a silver Toyota Camry or Honda.

Police did recover an AR-15 rifle at the scene.
