Shootings leave one dead, one injured

Two separate shootings have left one man dead and another wounded, police said.

A 38-year-old San Francisco man was gunned down in the Sunnydale housing development. Calls came in at 8:20 p.m. Friday of multiple gunshots fired on Brookdale Avenue, Officer Albie Esparza said. Police found the victim suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. The medical examiner identified him as Acer Roberts.

Police have not made any arrests in the case and have not determined the motive for the shooting.

Another shooting was reported at about 1:20 p.m. Saturday near Third Street and McKinnon Avenue in the city's Bayview District, Esparza said.

The victim in that case was a man in his 20s who was driven to San Francisco General. He is expected to survive his wounds.

Anyone with information about either shooting is asked to call the Police Department's anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or text information
to TIP411.
