Two injured in separate SF shootings

Two young men were shot less than a dozen blocks away from one another in separate incidents in San Francisco since Tuesday evening, including one teenager who was sent to the hospital with life-threatening gunshot wounds, police said.

The 17-year-old male was shot several times on the 100 block of Holladay Avenue near Bernal Heights early Wednesday, police said.

The teen was taken by his friends to San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening gunshot wounds around 3:20 a.m., police said.

Officers responding to a ShotSpotter alert found an empty crime scene with no victim, police said.

The evening before, a 21-year-old man was shot in the lower back on 26th Street and Treat Avenue in the Mission around 7:17 p.m., police said. The man was taken to an area hospital in stable condition.

He told police he heard shots and felt something hit his lower back but “saw nothing,” police said.

There are no suspects in either shootings. Police did not say whether or not the incidents were connected.
