The man suffered life-threatening injuries during the attempted robbery at around 5:03 a.m. near Seventh and Howard streets, according to police.

The victim was one of two men seriously injured in shootings that morning.

Just over an hour earlier, police said a 51-year-old man was standing outside in the Bayview when someone shot him.

The shooting happened at around 3:54 a.m. near Industrial Street and Palou Avenue, according to police.
