8:40 AM: After reportedly witnessing a robbery at Ingalls and Ingerson, an unidentified person chased the alleged robber, who shot them. The injury wasn’t life threatening, no one was arrested.

2:37 PM: A black man reportedly robbed a hispanic man at gunpoint at Delta and Hamilton. Injuries and arrests: neither.

7:10 PM: A black man reportedly approached another black man from behind at Thomas and Jennings and brandished a gun.There was a struggle and the gun went off, striking the victim in the shin. His injury was not life-threatening but, since the suspect fled, you can guess if an arrest was made. Hint: no.

10:10 PM: Cops pulled a black male over at 3rd and Fitzgerald, and discovered that there was an arrest warrant out for the guy. When they tried to take him in, he reportedly started his car, dragging the officers. They prevailed through their non-life-threatening injuries and arrested him.

12:50 AM: A car was reportedly set afire at Alemany and Naglee. SFFD put out the fire, but no one has any idea who did it, so I think we can all agree that chances for an arrest on this one are slim.

2 AM: Witnesses say someone was shot a gun into the air at least 4 times on the 1300 block of Noriega. SOMEBODY isn’t listening to Gavin! The witnesses say that the shooter got into a car driven by another male and took off. Neither damage nor injuries have been reported, and no one’s been arrested.
