SFPD investigating at least six reports of shootings in past 24 hours

San Francisco police are investigating at least six reports of shootings in the past 24 hours, but there is only one known victim from the gunfire, authorities said Friday morning.

Officers responded to multiple reports of shots fired at Dwight and Girard streets at about 11:40 a.m. Thursday. Video surveillance in the area showed two cars at the intersection when the shots were fired, but it wasn’t clear from which vehicle the gunfire originated and no victims were located.

Less than an hour later, at about 12:18 p.m., officers responded to a report of a gunshot in the 1400 block of Shafter Avenue. Bullet fragments, but no victims, were found at the scene.

Later Thursday, just after 11 p.m., officers responded to a Shot Spotter activation in the 200 block of South Van Ness Avenue where video had captured one suspect shooting a gun before running away south on Minna Street.

Another suspect fled west on 14th Street, and no victims or property damage were located.

The final shooting reported Thursday happened minutes later, at about 11:20 p.m. A 49-year-old man and 31-year-old woman were leaving an event at Golden Gate Park in the unit block of Nancy Pelosi Drive when a suspect wearing a mask approached them and fired a shot into the air, police said.

The suspect demanded the victims’ belongings before fleeing in a vehicle.

Then, early Friday at about 2:51 a.m., a Shot Spotter was activated at 22nd and Florida streets. Responding officers found bullet fragments at the scene, and the victim — a man in his 30s — drove himself to a hospital where he was found to have suffered life-threatening injuries, according to police.

Also early Friday, at about 4:11 a.m., officers responded to a report of a Shot Spotter activated in the 700 block of Missouri Street. There the officers found shell casings, but no damage to any vehicles or structures.

No arrests have been made in any of the incidents.
