5:01 PM: A person was wounded in a shooting in San Francisco’s Mission District this afternoon, police said.
The male victim was near Harrison and 24th streets at about 3:20 p.m. when two suspects approached him and one pulled out a gun and shot him, police spokesman Officer Carlos Manfredi said.
The victim was shot in both the upper and lower extremities, and was taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated, Manfredi said.
He did not yet know the extent of the victim’s injuries.
An employee at a nearby market who asked to remain anonymous said that although there have been shootings in the neighborhood before, they usually occur after the sun goes down.
“Late at night it’s another story, but during broad daylight, that’s something that doesn’t really happen,” the employee said.
No arrests had been made in connection with the shooting as of late this afternoon, Manfredi said.
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.
