Police looking for suspects in Sunset shooting

Police are searching for two suspects believed to be involved in the Saturday shooting of a man while he sat in his car in the Sunset District, a police spokesman said.

The suspects are in their mid to late 20s and are known to the victim, San Francisco police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

The identities of the suspects are being withheld in order to not compromise the investigation, Esparza said.

Officers received a report shortly after 9:30 p.m. of shots fired on the 500 block of Noriega Street. Responding officers found a 27-year-old man sitting in a parked car and suffering from gunshot wounds.

The victim's injuries are not expected to be life threatening, Esparza said.

Police have not determined if the incident is gang-related. The shooting is believed to have stemmed from a verbal altercation, Esparza said.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the San Francisco police anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444. They can also text information to TIP411.
