The shooting was reported shortly before 9:30 p.m. near the intersection of West Point and Middle Point roads.

An 18-year-old man was walking in the area when he heard gunfire, and then realized he had been shot once in the leg, police said.

He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for his injury, which was not considered life-threatening.

Three male suspects, all 20 years old or younger, were arrested a short time later in connection with the shooting, police said.
