Monday in the Mission: Drive-by shooting and armed robbery

A man was injured in a drive-by shooting and another was robbed at gunpoint Monday night in the Mission district, say police.

The first incident occurred near the intersection of South Van Ness Avenue and 22nd Street just before 11 p.m. when the 29-year-old victim walked out of his house and was shot by someone inside a passing car.

The two suspects, both men in their late teens or early 20s, fled from the scene after one of them fired a handgun at the victim.

The victim, who was hit in the abdomen, is expected to survive and was transported to a nearby hospital.

The second incident of the night took place at midnight near the intersection of Guerrero and 16th streets.

The 25-year-old victim was walking to her car when a man in his early 20s and a 16-year-old female approached her and pulled out a gun. The pair then took her wallet and phone and fled.

The 16-year-old was later arrested.
