There were at least two shootings in San Francisco over Labor Day Weekend, according to police, one of which caused critical injuries to the victim.
The first shooting occurred just after midnight Sunday in the Outer Mission area.
A 17-year-old boy was walking home in the area of Mission Street and Geneva Avenue about 12:30 a.m. when he heard gunshots, police said.
Once he got home, he realized he’d been grazed by a bullet in his leg.
His mother took him to the hospital for his injuries, which were not life threatening.
The second shooting happened Sunday afternoon in the Western Addition.
A 37-year-old man was crossing the street near Golden Gate Avenue and Broderick Street about 2:16 p.m. when a man inside a silver 4-door sedan shot him, police Officer Gordon Shyy said.
The victim was taken to the hospital with injuries that were considered to be life threatening, and as of Sunday night, he was still in critical condition, Shyy said.
The suspect in the shooting fled the scene and is still at large. He was only described by police as a man aged 20 to 30.
