Separate shootings in SF leave two men injured

One man was hospitalized after he was shot at while driving in San Francisco’s Visitacion Valley neighborhood Thursday afternoon.

At 12:09 p.m., a 21-year-old man was driving on Sunnydale Avenue, near Hahn Street, when an unknown suspect in a white Dodge Caravan began shooting at him with a handgun, according to police.

The suspect shot at the victim from the front of the vehicle.

The victim was struck in the shoulder. He was taken to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening, police said.

The suspect, described as a man in his 20s, fled in the van, according to police.

Separately, a 30-year-old man was shot early Friday morning on Mission Street after he got into an argument with people inside a car.

At 2:18 a.m. the man was standing in the 2000 block of Mission Street, near 16th Street, when a four-door sedan with tinted windows parked in front of him, according to police.

The vehicle had five occupants, four men and one woman, all described as in their 20s.

The man somehow got into an argument with the occupants. One of the occupants then brandished a handgun and shot at the victim.

The vehicle sped off and was last seen heading south on Mission Street, police said.

The victim suffered a gunshot wound to the hip. He was taken to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening, according to police.CrimeSan Francisco Police DepartmentShootings
