Two men were shot near Bernal Heights on Saturday and another man was struck by gunfire the next day underneath the freeway in South of Market, police said.
The first shooting was an attempted robbery that turned violent when the victims followed the thief, police said. The two men were sitting in a car on 30th Street near Mission Street around 6:15 a.m. when a man walked up and tried to rob them.
When the victims said they didn’t have any money, the thief walked away. But the victims walked in his direction and that’s when the thief shot both of them with a handgun, police said.
The younger man, 20, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with a gunshot wound to the abdomen considered life threatening, police said. The other man, 35, was shot in the thigh, taken to SFGH and expected to survive.
A gray Chevy Malibu is believed to be connected to the shooting. Police are also looking for a man and woman believed to have been with the shooter.
In the other case, a 30-year-old man Sunday morning was shot in the leg while walking on San Bruno
Avenue at 15th Street around 5:30 a.m., police said.
The victim fell to the ground as the unknown suspect drove away, westbound on 15th Street, in an older, black two-door Ford Mustang. No arrests were made in either shootings.
