sfpd_crimescene.jpg8:44 AM: A man suffered life-threatening injuries when he was stabbed while walking home from a bar in San Francisco’s Mission District early this morning, a police spokesman said.

The stabbing was reported at about 1:50 a.m. near the intersection of 16th and Mission streets, where the 28-year-old victim had just left a bar, San Francisco police Sgt. Mike Andraychak said.

The man was walking home when he was confronted by four men between the ages of 20 and 25, Andraychak said.

The men stabbed the victim multiple times and fled in an unknown direction, Andraychak said.

The man was taken by ambulance to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

He told police he thinks the suspects were gang members who mistook him for someone else, Andraychak said.

No arrests have been made and no detailed suspect descriptions were immediately available this morning, he said.

The stabbing was followed by a fatal shooting less than an hour later on the next block of Mission Street.

A man in his mid-20s was shot at about 2:25 a.m. near the intersection of 17th and Mission streets. He was taken to a hospital where he died at about 4 a.m., Andraychak said.

A black SUV-type vehicle was seen leaving the scene of the shooting, but no arrests have been made and no other suspect information was immediately available, he said.
The two cases are not believed to be related.

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

    these incidents happened within 30 minutes of each other? I’d presume the police we’re still in the area after the stabbing. not very encouraging if a shooting takes place one block away.
