Man Shot in the Leg by Attempted Robbery Suspects in Mission District

A man was shot in the leg during an attempted robbery outside his home in San Francisco’s Mission District on Tuesday evening, police said.

The victim, a man in his 30s, walked out of his home near the intersection of York and 23rd streets at about 6:30 p.m. when two male suspects approached him, according to police.

The suspects, described as two men in their 20s, forced the victim back to his front door and demanded he open the door for them.

The victim took out his key and broke it, police said.

He was able to break free from the suspects and run, but heard a gunshot and noticed that he had been hit, police said.

The suspects fled the scene following the shooting and no arrests have been made, police said.

Police said a four-door silver sedan was at the scene and may be associated with the suspects.

The victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital with a gunshot wound to his leg that does not appear to be life-threatening, police said.
