4:36 PM: A teenager was detained but has not been arrested for allegedly shooting another teen in the foot in San Francisco’s Bayview District on Friday evening, police said today.
The shooting was reported at about 6:50 p.m. Friday near the intersection of Ingalls Street and Gilman Avenue.
Officers responded and found blood across a liquor store entryway, but no victim was spotted, according to police.
The store’s owner said he heard the door chime and looked up to see the victim sitting in his doorway and saying he had been shot in the foot, police said.
Another person then approached and helped the victim get up, and they both left the area. The 19-year-old victim was later found at San Francisco General Hospital with the gunshot wound to his foot. The injury is not considered life-threatening, according to police.
Officers responding to the scene also saw a suspect leaving the intersection of Ingalls Street and Fitzgerald Avenue. The suspect, who was walking at first, began to run but was quickly detained by officers.
Police also found a sawed-off shotgun in front of a home in the 2900 block of Ingalls Street.
The suspect, also in his late teens, was detained, and a gunshot residue test was performed to determine if he had fired the gun.
The results of the residue test are pending, and the suspect has not been arrested, police spokesman Sgt. Mike Andraychak said today.
The shooting is being investigated by the Police Department’s gang task force.
Anyone with information about the 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.
