The shooting was reported at 11:29 a.m. Thursday in the 1000 block of Oakdale Avenue.

The 20-year-old victim was approached by three male suspects, one of whom pulled out a black semiautomatic gun from his waistband and shot at him, according to police.

The victim tried to flee but a bullet ricocheted and struck him in the foot, police said.

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

The suspects, two of whom are described as being in their mid to late teens, fled and have not been found as of today, according to police.

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