Man wounded in Mid-Market area shooting

A man was wounded during a shooting in the Mid-Market area Monday afternoon, police Sgt. Danielle Newman said.

The shooting occurred in the unit block of Jones Street near McAllister and Market streets about 1:30 p.m. The victim reportedly was able to run from there to the 1000 block of Market Street where he came to rest in front of the San Francisco AIDS Foundation doorway, a day after World AIDS Day.

The victim was taken to the hospital, Newman said, and his condition is unknown. He was conscious and breathing, she said.

A pile of bloody clothes remained in the doorway after the incident.

Witnesses in the area said they heard at least six or seven shots.

Jones Street was blocked off during the course of the investigation and spent bullets and casings were seen on the street, circled by crime scene investigators. A bullet hole pierced the door of a gray Chrysler that was parked on Jones Street. A building on that corner also seemed to have been struck with a bullet, all in the direction that the victim reportedly ran.

The area in front of the AIDS foundation on Market Street was also taped off.

The victim was a man, probably in his 20s, Newman said. A person was detained in relation to the shooting but it was unclear if that person was the suspect. Investigators are trying to determine the detainee's significance.

It was unknown Monday afternoon what may have triggered the attack, Newman said, although at least one witness said it may have been a fight.
