UPDATE: Three injured in separate Mission District shootings Thursday morning

Three men were injured in separate shootings in the Mission District on Thursday morning, police said.

The most recent incident left a male victim shot shortly before 9 a.m. in the area of 16th and Mission streets, according to police spokesperson Officer Giselle Talkoff.

The victim was taken to a hospital with injuries that are not thought to be life threatening, Talkoff said.

Police did not immediately have any suspect information to release, and Talkoff said the victim so far appears to be uncooperative.

Mission Street was blocked between 15th and 16th streets following the shooting, according to police.

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency reported on Twitter that 14-Mission Muni buses have been re-routed around the area.

Earlier Thursday, two men were shot and critically injured while sitting in a car in the Mission District, according to police.

The shooting was reported at 2:18 a.m. in the area of 17th and Mission streets.

The victims, ages 39 and 36, were sitting in their vehicle when a black sedan approached and a driver got out of it. The driver approached the victims’ vehicle and opened fire at them, police said.

Both victims suffered gunshot wounds and were taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for their injuries, which are considered life-threatening, police said.

No detailed description was immediately available for the male shooting suspect, who may have had a female accomplice, according to police.

Anyone with information about the shooting is encouraged to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the message.
