Two victims were hospitalized in connection with two separate early morning shootings in San Francisco on Monday, police said.

The first shooting occurred in Bernal Heights around 4:30 a.m. The victim, a 20-year-old woman, was exiting her car and walking away when an unknown male suspect opened fire and struck her in the shoulder and head, police said. The victim was able to drive herself to a hospital for treatment of injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

Police did not have a detailed description of the shooter, although they said it was a male suspect who fled in a black, four-door vehicle. No arrest was reported Monday.

The second shooting happened a half-hour later in the Tenderloin, police said.

In that incident, a man in his 20s told police he was walking in the area of Turk and Taylor streets when an unknown person shot him in the arm. He was able to transport himself to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

Anyone with information on either of these incidents is encouraged to call police at (415) 575-4444 or send a text to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the message.
