San Francisco police are still seeking suspects in two shootings that injured six people in the city’s Mission District on Wednesday night, police said today.
The first shooting was reported around 10:15 p.m. in the 1100 block of Alabama Street near 23rd Street, according to police.
Three men were standing outside when they heard gunfire and realized they were hit. A fourth victim, a woman in her 20s, was outside a store when she also heard the gunfire and was struck, police said.
The victims were all taken to San Francisco General Hospital and are expected to survive.
Three male suspects were seen leaving the scene and had not been found as of this morning, according to police.
Another shooting was reported shortly after 10:30 p.m. in the 1300 block of Natoma Street, police said.
The victims, two men in their 20s, were standing when a pair of suspects approached and fired several rounds at them. The victims were both struck in the legs and were taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for their injuries, according to police.
The suspects then fled in a vehicle described as a black four-door sedan. Officers detained two people in connection with the shooting but later released them pending further investigation, police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy said this morning.
Anyone with information about either shooting 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.
