Gang activity in the Mission continued this weekend as four men were sent to the hospital in two separate incidents, police said.
The first occurred in the 1100 block of York Street at 23rd Street –- one block away from San Francisco General Hospital — shortly after midnight on Friday, November 26.
Three men in their early 20s and a juvenile female pulled over, exited their car, walked up to a group of three men and asked them their gang affiliation, according to the police report.
Troy Dangerfield, a Police Department spokesman, did not say what the victims’ response was, but they were attacked. Two men were shot, one suffering a “graze” wound where the bullet hit the skin but did penetrate, and the other was stabbed, Dangerfield said.
Their injuries were not life-threatening, according to police.
The following day, November 27, a man was shot in the leg near the intersection of 26th and Harrison streets sometime before midnight in a drive-by shooting.
His injuries were not life-threatening, police said.
The car was described only as “dark-colored,” and there is no description of a suspect or suspects.
Dangerfield said that the incidents are gang-related, and urged witnesses to come forward.
“They are gang-related, now what?” he asked rhetorically. “No one is telling us what they saw, so we can’t prosecute them — we need help from the community.”
