Two men shot outside SF nightclub

Two men were shot outside of a nightclub in San Francisco early Christmas Day, according to police.

Officers responded to the shooting at about 2:40 a.m. in the 500 block of Fourth Street, where two victims were found on a sidewalk suffering from gunshot wounds and more people were involved in a fight nearby, police said.

The two shooting victims, both in their late 20s or early 30s, were taken to a hospital and are expected to survive.

Another man was assaulted in the fight outside the nightclub. Police said he was “sucker punched” and knocked to the ground before a suspect kicked him in the head multiple times.

A third party intervened, and when police arrived, they placed a second suspect into custody. The first suspect, however, fled the scene and had not been arrested as of later that morning.

The assault victim was taken to a hospital suffering from head trauma and is also expected to survive.
