Two shot in separate incidents Monday

Two men were shot and wounded in San Francisco Monday in incidents in the Tenderloin and Bayview, according to the police.

The first shooting happened just after noon near the intersection of Phelps Street and Hudson Avenue in the Bayview.

The 26-year-old victim stepped out of a van and got into a fight with two men walking down the street. Then one of the two men — both in their late teens — fired a semi-automatic pistol and hit the victim.

The pair then fled onto a nearby bus.

The victim, who was shot in the arm, is expected to survive.

The day’s second shooting happened at about 9:59 p.m. at the intersection of Golden Gate Avenue and Jones Street in the Tenderloin.

Blood was found at the scene by police soon after shots were heard, but the victim was not found.

Later that night the 23-year-old victim walked into San Francisco General Hospital and told police he’d been shot, but would not say more.

He was shot in the elbow and the knee.
