Teenagers shot in apparent drive-by in Western Addition

An apparent drive-by on Fillmore Street in the Western Addition injured two young men late Friday, police said.

A 19-year-old man was struck by gunfire in the head, hand and leg when someone opened fire from a dark-colored sedan on Fillmore and McAllister streets around 9:16 p.m., police said. Four suspects were in the car.

The suspects then drove away toward a second victim, 16, who they then fired several shots at, striking him in the lower abdomen.

Both young men were taken to a local hospital and are expected to survive.

No arrests were made in the shootings.
