Three men injured in weekend SF shootings

Police are investigating a series of shootings that left at least three men injured in San Francisco over the weekend.

The first occurred Saturday night in the Mission District and left a 42-year-old critically injured, police said.

Witnesses told police they heard male voices and then gunshots in the area of 19th and Capp streets shortly after 10:30 p.m.

Two suspects were seen running from the scene, and the victim, a 42-year-old man, was found on the ground. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition, police said.

Police did not release any description of the suspects but said they were associated with a dark blue four-door vehicle.

Two separate shootings early Sunday in the Bayview and Hunters Point left two more men injured as well.

A 36-year-old man was injured in a drive-by shooting while sitting on the sidewalk in the 700 block of Kirkwood Avenue around 1:30 a.m. when a small four-door dark blue sedan drove by, according to police.

Suspects fired shots from the vehicle, striking the victim. Police said the victim was taken to a hospital in stable condition.

Hours later around 4:45 a.m. a man was critically injured in a shooting outside a Bayview nightclub.

The shooting occurred after a fight broke out outside a nightclub in the area of Loomis and Waterloo streets, according to police.

A male suspect in his 20s fired 10 rounds from a handgun into the crowd, striking a 23-year-old man. The victim was taken to the hospital in critical condition, police said.

No arrest had been made in any of the shootings as of Monday.
