Man stabbed after shooting woman as argument unfolds in abandoned building

An argument inside an abandoned building in the Mission District turned violent early Friday morning when a 26-year-old woman became the unintended victim of a shooting, according to police.

Five people were arguing inside the building on 19th Street between Capp Street and South Van Ness Avenue at around 2:12 a.m. when the shooter missed his target and struck the woman in the leg, police said.

The shooter, a 25-year-old man, was then stabbed in the back and the hand with a knife by his intended target, according to police.

The injured woman was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive.

The injured shooter and the other people fled the scene. On Monday morning, police said no one had been arrested.

The shooting was just one of several that police have responded to in San Francisco in recent days.

Police said the 21-year-old man and 23-year-old man were shot near Palou Avenue and Selby streets at around 3:45 a.m. The men suffered injuries including to the chest, buttocks and leg.
