Police respond to 3 shootings over Halloween, including one that injured officer

San Francisco police responded to multiple shootings over Halloween, including one that injured an officer.

A 35-year-old man was shot in the Western Addition just after 10 p.m. Tuesday in the 600 block of Willow Street, according to police.

The victim was standing in front of his home when he heard shots fired and realized he had been hit. He was taken to a hospital but is expected to survive his injuries, police said.

Police are looking for three male suspects who were standing nearby on a street corner at the time of the shooting. They fled the area on foot and have not yet been located.

Just after midnight, an officer and a male suspect were both injured during an exchange of gunfire in the area of 18th and Diamond streets.

Police said the shooting occurred after officers were flagged down by a citizen regarding a suspicious vehicle and officers approached to investigate.

Both the officer and suspect were hospitalized and police have not provided an update on their conditions.

Shots were also fired in the 400 block of Divisadero Street at 2:22 a.m.

Police said they were searching for three male suspects who fled the area after shooting at a 23-year-old man.

The shots struck a nearby window instead and the man was not injured.
