Man shot in chest in Bayview-Hunters Point

A mid-afternoon shooting in Bayview-Hunters Point sent one man to the hospital over the weekend with a gunshot wound to the chest, police said.

Police released few details surrounding the case, but said the 27-year-old man was struck by gunfire Saturday on the 100 block of Harbor Road.

He was taken to an area hospital around 2:49 p.m. and is expected to survive, police said.

Police have no suspect in the case.

The Harbor Road shooting followed an unrelated incident Saturday morning where another man was shot in the back near United Nations Plaza, police said.

The 40-year-old man was talking to the suspect around 7:25 p.m. near the intersection of Fulton and Hyde streets when he turned away, police said. That’s when the other man is suspected of shooting him in the back with a handgun.

The victim was driven to a hospital on Geary Street before being taken by ambulance to another in the city, police said.

He is expected to survive. The suspect, described as between 20 and 30 years old, has not been arrested.
