Mission District shooting puts two in hospital

Continuing San Francisco's escalating violence streak, a shooting on the streets of San Francisco’s Mission District injured two people shortly after midnight Friday morning, police reported.

At 12:03 a.m., an unidentified shooter fired on two victims from a vehicle in the 3400 block of 19th Street, police said. The victims, who were on the street when they were shot, were taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where they were listed in stable condition.

“It was kind of startling — everyone wanted to know what was going on,'' said Melissa Scott, a customer at Lexington Club, which is located near the site of the shooting. “But then it was just business as usual.''

No arrests have been made in the shooting, police reported.
