in the Castro District just before 5 a.m. Saturday when one person

streets, police said.
The victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital
with injuries that were not considered life threatening, police
The suspect, described only as a Hispanic male, fled on foot
and has not been arrested.
Later Saturday, at about 6 p.m., a 15-year-old boy who had been
standing on a street corner in the Mission Terrace District was
reportedly stabbed in the left eye and hands, San Francisco police

Lisbon Street when the suspects approached him and reportedly
yelled at him and then stabbed him, Baglin said.

condition, Baglin said.
At 2:24 a.m. Sunday a male victim was shot in the leg in the

in an argument in front of a nightclub when a suspect fired at
the crowd, striking the victim in the leg, Baglin said.

remains at large.
About half and hour later, at 3 a.m., a male victim was walking
in the area of Sunnydale Avenue and Loehr Street when he heard
what sounded like gunshots and then felt a pain in his left leg
and realized he had been shot, Baglin said.
Ten minutes later, in the 100 block of Eddy Street, a male victim
was stabbed in the neck during an argument. The victim was taken
to San Francisco General Hospital in stable condition and the
