One man was stabbed to death and another sustained a life-threatening gunshot wound to the stomach in separate incidents in the Tenderloin on Thursday night, police said.
The first incident was reported around 7:40 p.m. at Turk and Leavenworth streets. Two suspects, a man and woman, allegedly stabbed another man and woman with a knife, according to police.
Both victims were transported to an area hospital, where the man was pronounced dead and the woman was treated for a non-life threatening injury. No one was arrested in that case.
Later that night, shortly after 10 p.m., a 36-year-old man was shot in the abdomen in the 500 block of Ellis Street, police said.
The suspect in the shooting apparently entered a building and shot the victim before running away on foot, according to police.
The victim was taken to hospital with a life-threatening wound. No arrests were made in that case either.
