A man was shot in the face in San Francisco’s Mission District late Sunday night, police said.
The 45-year-old victim was arguing with the suspect, described by police as a 53-year-old man, in the 500 block of South Van Ness Avenue shortly before midnight when the suspect allegedly pulled out a handgun and opened fire, police said.
The victim was transported to a hospital with a gunshot wound to the face, but is expected to survive his injuries, according to police.
The suspect was arrested, but police had not released his name as of Monday morning.
In a separate incident, a 30-year-old man was stabbed in the chest and robbed of his smartphone late Saturday night in the Fillmore District, police said.
The man was walking in the area of Eddy and Gough streets around 9:15 p.m. when two other men approached the victim, according to police.
One of the suspects grabbed the victim’s arm, and the victim punched that suspect in the face. That’s when the suspect displaced a knife and cut the victim in the chest, police said.
The suspects then rifled through the victim’s pockets and took his smartphone and wallet before fleeing.
The victim was taken to an area hospital and is expected to survive. No arrests had been made as of Monday morning.
Meanwhile, an attempted car-jacking left a 43-year-old man with a laceration to his hand early Sunday morning in the Tenderloin, police said.

The two got into a struggling match, and the suspect was able to overpower the victim and enter the vehicle, police said.
However, the suspect couldn’t start the vehicle with a key, and ended up running from the vehicle east on Geary Street.
The victim was treated at an area hospital and is expected to survive. No arrests had been made as of Monday morning.
