A man was shot and another was stabbed during a fight in San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood early this morning, police said.
The fight was reported at 1:11 a.m. in the 400 block of Broadway Street.
The victims, ages 26 and 21, were in a fight with two other men when one of the suspects pulled out a gun and shot the 26-year-old in the stomach, police said.
The second suspect then stabbed the 21-year-old man in the back and face. Both victims were taken to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries considered life-threatening, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.
Officers initially detained two suspects but released them pending further investigation, Esparza said.
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.
