Store clerk grazed by bullet in Potrero Hill robbery

A store clerk was grazed by a bullet in a robbery and shooting at a Potrero Hill market, San Francisco police Lt. Lyn Tomioka said Thursday.

Officers went to the intersection of 23rd and Rhode Island streets just after 9 p.m. on reports of shots fired.

Investigators learned two men had entered Kansas Food Market at 2250 23rd St. and demanded money from the clerk, she said. The clerk handed over some cash, but the suspects demanded more and a physical struggle began.

Tomioka said one of the suspects fired a single shot and the clerk suffered a graze wound to his left shoulder. He was taken to San Francisco
General Hospital to be treated for the injury, which is not life-threatening.

The suspects, described as men between 18 and 20 years old wearing dark hooded sweatshirts, were seen fleeing the scene on foot, Tomioka said.
