San Francisco police searched to no avail Friday for a suspect who is believed to have shot and injured a man in South of Market.
The suspect opened fire on a 49-year-old man inside a building on Harrison Street between Second and Third streets at around 8:58 a.m., police said.
The victim ran outside to call for help and was taken to a local hospital with injuries that are not considered life-threatening, according to police.
Police staged a perimeter around the building to determine whether the suspect fled or remained inside.
“Please avoid the area if you can and stay safe,” Supervisor Matt Haney, who represents the area, said on Twitter.
By 3 p.m., the Tactical Unit had searched the building and determined no one was inside.
No arrests have been made in the case.
