Two women, man injured during weekend SF shootings

The two men struck by gunfire on the highway Saturday weren’t the only shooting victims over the weekend in San Francisco, where two women were shot in the head and a man was shot in the buttocks.

In the Mission, a 19-year-old woman’s head was grazed by a bullet early Friday, police said. The gunman walked up to her and opened fire with a silver handgun at 20th and Capp streets around 2:18 a.m. before fleeing on foot.

The wounded woman was taken to San Francisco General Hospital and is expected to survive.

Friday night a 23-year-old man was shot in the buttocks while walking into a business on 14th and Shotwell streets, police said. The man heard several gunshots and one struck his behind. He could not provide police with additional information.

The man was struck around 11:20 p.m. and taken to SFGH.

Early Sunday morning, a woman drove herself and two others to SFGH when she was shot in the face and her passengers were cut by shattering glass, police said.

The 23-year-old woman was shot near Mariposa Street and Potrero Avenue around 3:45 a.m., police said. The woman is expected to survive and the suspect is unknown.

No arrests have been made in the shootings.
