Teenager survives brazen daytime shooting

A 15-year-old boy survived a gunshot wound in the Bayview district Monday afternoon, police said.

The boy was walking on the sidewalk in the 4600 block of Third Street around 12:16 p.m. when a gunman hopped out of a passing car and fired off a semiautomatic handgun, striking him once, police said.

The suspect, described as a black man in his 20s, then hopped back into a vehicle driven by another man that sped off, police said.

The boy ran around the corner for help and was rushed to the hospital. His injury was not life threatening, police said.

There have been no arrests.

Further information on the shooting was not immediately available, police Officer Albie Esparza said.
