Police arrest three Sunday in simultaneous shootings

A near-fatal shooting in the Tenderloin and another shooting in a taxicab resulted in three arrests early Sunday morning, according to the San Francisco Police Department.

The shootings occurred about 2:15 a.m. and appear to be unrelated, police said. Both victims were recovering Sunday at San Francisco General Hospital.

One of the shootings occurred in the area of Taylor and Eddy streets. According to Sgt. Gavin McEachernat the Tenderloin police station, plainclothesmen were driving through the area on a nightclub enforcement check when they just happened to see the shooting.

The officers immediately got out and chased the man about two blocks to Turk and Mason Street and made an arrest. The victim sustained life-threatening wounds and was in critical condition as of 6 p.m., police said. The suspect’s name has not been released, but McEachern said he is a San Francisco resident with a previous arrest history.

Another shooting took place about the same time in a taxicab in the Mission district. Police responded to the area of 16th and Harrison streets, according to police. One victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital with a gunshot wound to the buttocks.

Two suspects were taken into custody and the victim was reported in stable condition.
