Two injured in separate shootings in Visitacion Valley

Two shootings occurred within a half hour and a half-mile of each other in San Francisco's Visitacion Valley neighborhood Saturday evening, police said.

Officers responded to a report of a possible drive-by shooting around 7 p.m. in the unit block of Heritage at Rey Street in Visitacion Valley, police said.

Emergency medical personnel transported a man with a gunshot wound to his arm to San Francisco General Hospital in stable condition.

Around 7:30 p.m., officers responded to the area of Santos Street and Brookdale Avenue where they located a man with a gunshot wound to his lower back, leaving the man in serious condition. He was also transported to a local hospital.

Saturday's shootings follow a fatal shooting in the same neighborhood on Tuesday night that left a 33-year-old man dead and a non-fatal shooting on Thursday night that hospitalized a 26-year-old man.

Police are investigating the incidents and no further details were immediately available.Bay Area NewsCrimeCrime & CourtsSan Francisco Police DepartmentShootingVisitacion Valley
