Third Mission district shooting in a week wounds man

While several witnesses heard a broad daylight shooting in the Mission district on Monday, none saw the attack and the gunman remains on the loose, police said.

A 34-year-old man was reportedly shot in the shoulder in the 2500 block of Folsom Street, near 21st Street, just before 1 p.m., Officer Albie Esparza said.

He was transported to San Francisco General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

It was the third shooting in the neighborhood in a week.

At the time of the incident, Esparza said, the victim had been under the influence of alcohol beverages and thus was unable to offer much information to responding police officers.

The motive for the attack is not known. Several bystanders in the well-trafficked area provided some information to investigators, but details remain vague.

“One person heard an argument and then heard a gunshot,” Esparza said.

However, none of the witnesses reported seeing the men argue or even seeing the suspect fire at the victim.

The relationship between the victim and suspect is unknown.

The suspect, described as a man in his 40s or 50s, was reportedly wearing a black-hooded sweatshirt, dark baggy blue jeans, and a baseball cap and fled the scene in a white vehicle.

The Mission has been dealing with a spate of violence. Less than 36 hours before the Monday incident, 32-year-old Waynenard Aitemon Jr. was gunned down only a few blocks away near 16th and Mission streets. An arrest has not been announced in connection with the attack.

About 4:30 a.m. on Oct. 14, police said, 28-year-old Maurice White was shot dead five short blocks from Monday’s shooting at 21st and Bartlett streets.

White’s roommate, Vincent Jacobo, has been charged with the murder.

Despite the close proximity of the shootings, Esparza said nothing indicates that they are related.
