Two injured during early morning shootings in SF

A 33-year-old man struck by a flurry of gunfire in the Tenderloin was one of two shooting victims in San Francisco early Thursday morning, police said.

The shooter and an accomplice walked up to the victim on Leavenworth Street near Turk Street and opened fire with a handgun around 1:15 a.m., striking the man several times in the stomach and legs.

The wounded man was taken to a local hospital and is expected to survive.

The two suspects fled the area after the shooting, leaving behind shell casings. Their identities are still unknown to police.

Then around 1:50 a.m., a 36-year-old man walked into a hospital in The City with a gunshot wound to his leg, police said.

The man was uncooperative and did not tell officers from Mission Police Station where he was shot or who shot him, police said.
