Two shootings in SF housing projects, one in Bayview Friday

Three people struck by gunfire as they stood outside in the Potrero Hill housing projects Friday night were victims in one of three separate incidents in San Francisco the same day, police said.

The trio was shot by two unknown men on 25th and Connecticut streets around 10:40 p.m., police said. One of the wounded, a 42-year-old man, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries considered life threatening. The other two are expected to survive.

The suspected gunman wielded handguns and fled the scene in a silver sedan. No detailed description of them has been released.

About an hour earlier, a 35-year-old man was shot in the mouth while in front of his home at the Bernal Dwellings housing project.

The man heard gunshots and realized he’d been hit around 9:15 p.m. on Kamille Court and Harrison Street, police said. He was treated at SFGH and is expected to survive.

The gunman is described as a man in his 20’s. He fled the scene with a handgun before police arrived.

On Friday afternoon, a 63-year-old man shot his roommate in the hand in the Bayview for unknown reasons.

Officers responded to the shooting at 1:27 p.m. to Oakdale Avenue and Mendell Street, police said.

The wounded man, 68, was taken to SFGH with injuries not considered life threatening, police said.

The suspected gunman fled and no arrests were made by police.

Police have not said whether or not the shootings are related.
