Man shot in leg, carjacked on Taraval Street

A man was shot during a carjacking early this morning in the Inner Parkside neighborhood, police said.

The 32-year-old victim was getting out of his car in the 700 block of Taraval Street about 4:05 a.m. when a man in his 20s approached the man while holding a handgun, which the suspect pointed at the victim, police said.

The crook demanded the victim’s property and the victim turned over his wallet and keys, police said. The thug then shot the victim in the leg and fled in the victim’s car. The car is described as a blue two-door vehicle.

The victim was taken to the hospital, but his injuries were not life-threatening.
