Weekend shootings injure three men in Mission district

A man was shot and seriously injured in San Francisco’s Mission district early Saturday morning as he attempted to drive away from an argument, police said.

The victim, a 34-year-old man, was sitting in a vehicle with a friend in the area of 21st and Shotwell streets shortly before 3 a.m. when the shooting occurred, police said.

A male suspect walked up to the vehicle’s passenger side window and started to argue with the victim.

The victim tried to drive away, but the suspect shot him in the chest before fleeing the scene, police said.

The victim suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to a hospital for treatment.

No arrest had been made as of Monday morning, police said.

Several hours later, two people were injured in a shooting Saturday morning in San Francisco’s Mission district after an argument at a nearby gas station, police said.

The shooting was reported at about 6 a.m. in the area of South Van Ness Avenue and 17th Street.

Four men were in a car getting gas at the station when they got into an argument with another man pumping gas, according to police.

The victims drove away and the suspect followed. He drove in front of the victims’ vehicle and cut it off, then opened fire at the vehicle, striking two victims, police said.

One man was hit in the shoulder by the gunfire and another was hit in the back. They went to a hospital to be treated for their injuries, which are not considered life-threatening, according to police.

The suspect, described as being in his mid 30s or early 40s, fled in his silver four-door sedan and remained at large as of this morning, police said.

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.
