Two men injured in shooting

Two men who appear to have shot each other have both been taken to San Francisco General Hospital, one with life-threatening wounds, police reported.

At about 8:30 p.m., police responded to reports of gunshots on Garlington Court, a residential street in the Bayview neighborhood near George Washington Carver Elementary School, according to police Sgt. Lynn Tomioka.

Police found two victims with gunshot wounds, one of whom may have life-threatening injuries, she said.

Initial reports indicate the men may have been shooting at each other, but it’s not clear whether there were others involved with the shooting, she said.

Police are asking the public to assist with the investigation and come forward, either to the police station or to the anonymous tip line.

Garlington Court resident Chris Smith said he’s lived on the street for 34 years and it is only the second time he recalls violence erupting.
