policeblotter_sfa.jpgA woman was seriously injured in a shooting in San Francisco’s Bayview District Wednesday afternoon when shattered glass cut her face, a San Francisco police spokesman said.

The woman was transported to San Francisco General Hospital with serious injuries sustained in the shooting that occurred at 1593 Thomas Ave. at about 3:50 p.m., a fire dispatcher said.

Police spokesman Officer Eric Chiang originally said that the nature of the woman’s injuries was unclear but that she may have been shot in the face.

Police determined that glass shattered during the shooting caused the woman’s facial injuries, Chiang said.

“Initially, cops saw the blood from her head and thought she had been shot in the face,” Chiang said.

It was the second shooting in San Francisco Wednesday. Three hours earlier, a man was injured when he was shot in the Mission District in the 2800 block of Harrison Street.

That victim traveled by car to San Francisco General Hospital, and police said he is expected to survive.
