Officers are investigating the second shooting to occur on Monday,
a San Francisco police dispatcher said this morning.
Around 11:49 p.m. police received reports of gunshots on the
100 block of Blythdale Avenue in the Visitacion Valley neighborhood,
according to a dispatcher. Responding officers found a victim
suffering gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
There are no suspects in custody at this time, a dispatcher said.
The first shooting, which was reported at about 2:10 p.m., occurred
a few feet from Market Street, Sgt. Steve Mannina said. He was
shot at Turk and Mason streets.
The man, whose identity was not released, was transported to
San Francisco General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries,
police Sgt. Steve Mannina said.
A silver sedan pulled up to a Turk Street curb. The victim approached
the sedan and then broke away from it. Shots were fired and the
victim went east on Market Street, Mannina said.
Before he made it to Fifth Street, onlookers assisted him until
paramedics arrived, Mannina said.
The suspects fled westbound on Turk Street.
