One dead, two critical in four weekend shootings

Two people remain in critical condition today and one may be brain dead after a shooting in San Francisco's Mission District that killed one person, a police officer said.

At about 3:20 a.m., officers responded to the area of Treat Avenue and 23rd Street in the city's Mission District and found three victims suffering gunshot wounds, an officer said.

One person died and two were transported to San Francisco General Hospital, according to police.

The attack followed a string of apparently unrelated shootings that began at about 1:30 a.m. Saturday with the fatal shooting of 20-year-old Allen Bow.

Bow was shot in the 1300 block of Polk Street following a reported altercation with two suspects, according to police. He was pronounced dead at San Francisco General Hospital.

The second shooting occurred at about 1:50 a.m. today in the city's South of Market neighborhood.

At least one person inside an unidentified vehicle shot four people near Mission and 11th streets before fleeing the scene, according to police.

The victims were taken to San Francisco General Hospital where they are reportedly in stable condition, an officer said.

About 20 minutes later, at 2:10 a.m., officers responded to the 500 block of Florida Street, also located in the Mission District, where a dance club had apparently just closed, the officer said.

A fight that had allegedly broken out in the club earlier may have prompted an unknown suspect to shoot two people in their legs, according to police.

Both victims were in stable condition and transported to a local hospital.

Suspects remain at large for all four shootings, officers said.
