Mystery Surrounds Man Who Walked Into SF General With Gunshot Wound

San Francisco police are investigating the circumstances that led to a man walking into a hospital with a gunshot wound to his leg on Thursday morning, a police spokesman said.

The man, believed to be about 20 years old, walked into San Francisco General Hospital at about 11:30 a.m.

Thursday and said he had been shot at Fillmore and McAllister streets, police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy said.

In further interviews with investigators, the man then said he was actually shot at Van Ness Avenue and McAllister streets, Shyy said.

The man also gave police a false name and date of birth, Shyy said.

He was eventually released from the hospital and was uncooperative with further investigation into the shooting, according to Shyy.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the message.
