Two shootings rang out on the streets of San Francisco overnight, although thankfully no one was seriously injured, police said Wednesday.

The first shooting occurred in the Mission district Tuesday afternoon. In that incident, a 24-year-old man was walking out of a store at Bryant and 20th streets about 1:30 p.m. when another man shot at him, police said. The victim was struck by gunfire but police said his injuries were not life-threatening.

They described the suspect as a man in his 30s but no arrest has been made.

The second shooting happened early Wednesday morning in Hunters Point, police said.

A 25-year-old man was outside having a cigarette in the 100 block of Kiska Road about 1:45 a.m. when he saw three men, one of which pulled out a handgun, police said.

The victim ran back inside after he heard gunfire. He was not injured.
