Two people shot, injured over the weekend

San Francisco police responded to two shootings this weekend, one of which left a victim with life-threatening injuries.

The first occurred Saturday afternoon near Jefferson Square Park. The victim, a 53-year-old man, called 911 shortly after 2:30 p.m. from the 900 block of Eddy Street to report that he had been shot in the leg, police said.

He was taken to the hospital for treatment of his injuries. Police did not release any suspect description and no arrest has been reported as of this morning.

A second shooting occurred shortly before 2 a.m. Sunday in the Bayview District.

Officers responded to the area of Nichols and Cameron ways after a ShotSpotter detection system indicated shots had been fired in the area.

A vehicle fled the scene and arrived at a hospital with the victim, a 39-year-old man who was taken immediately into surgery with life-threatening injuries.

Officers found bullet casings at the scene, but further details on the circumstances of the shooting or a suspect description were not available as of Monday morning.
