Shootings on Monday follow violent weekend in SF

At least three more shootings occurred in San Francisco on Monday following an especially violent weekend in The City that saw five separate killings.

In the first incident, an unoccupied home was struck by stray bullets in a drive-by shooting Monday night in the Mission District, police said.

The incident occurred just after 6 p.m. in the 1400 block of Treat Way.

Police said a vehicle pulled up alongside a parked vehicle, when occupants from both vehicles began shooting at each other. No one was injured, but a nearby home sustained damage from the shooting.

No arrests had been made as of Tuesday morning.

Another drive-by shooting occurred Monday night when three men in their 20s were shot at while driving in the Oceanview neighborhood.

The men were driving on Farallones Street when at around 7:30 p.m. Monday a suspect saw them and flipped a U-turn before the suspect began firing a handgun at them, according to police.

The suspect followed the men to Lakeview and San Jose avenues where he again shot at their vehicle, police said.

The car with the three men at Alemany Boulevard and San Jose Avenue, and one of the occupants got out before running away. The suspect continued shooting, but the victim was uninjured.

The victim did not see the suspect, according to police.

Later Monday, a 28-year-old man was shot while he leaned into the passenger window of a car in the Mission, police said.

The suspect, a 25-year-old man, shot the victim while parked on 23rd Street between Treat Avenue and Folsom Street around 11:50 p.m. after “words were exchanged” between the two, police said.

The suspect then drove away in his vehicle, and the victim was taken to an area hospital for treatment. He’s expected to survive.

No arrests had been made in that case as of Tuesday morning.
