A 37-year-old man who was shot at 3:20 p.m. Tuesday at Harrison and 24th streets is no longer in life-threatening condition, according to police.

Two men ran up to the victim and shot him in the stomach before fleeing, police said. The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital.

Shortly after the shooting, the gang task force and violence reduction units were out at the scene, speaking to witnesses and collecting evidence while Harrison Street was closed to traffic between 24th and 25th streets. Three bullet casings could be seen on the ground.

The incident was not gang-related, said Officer Carlos Manfredi.

No arrests have been made.

We will update this story as soon as we receive more information.

    Uh, wow…. random targeting of passersby in broad daylight? I almost wish this were gang-related instead.

      It’s Friday the 29th and I keep waiting for an update to this story. If this wasn’t gang-related then I am 10x more scared than if it were (I’ve lived in the Mission for 6 years and still cannot believe I just typed that sentence…). I was driving home shortly after this happened and noted that if it were gang-related the cops would have been much more nervous, numerous and blocked off more than just the single block it happened on. Please keep us posted on the motive and suspects.

    Hardly sounds random. I would be very surprised if it was not gang related or some other kind of revenge-type shooting.

    Lots of trash living in that part of town; definitely not random.

      Be careful about making huge generalizations like “lots of trash living in that part of town.” That’s the kind of talk that precedes racist comments. Besides, unless you actually LIVE there as I do, how would you know?! There are many of us who are law-abiding, hard-working folks and want to keep the Misison safe.

        well, quite literally there’s always tons of trash just one block on my street (25th and Treat) that’s left behind by the street gamblers who are there every day

          The police dont say it is gang related until they know fir sure to avoid errors. Judging by these comments I an sure if they called it gang related and then retracted later, there would be more commits from some of you bashing them.

        Well, yes, there are many law-abiding, hard-working folks living in that area but, unfortunately, there’s also a lot of trash (literally speaking and not). It’s sad but it’s a matter of fact!

        there is a lot of trash in this area. that doesn’t mean there aren’t law abiding citizens too, but there are tons of people who live here who are keeping the neighborhood down.

    Not clear why Lt. Pengel would tell ML that the “…the shooting doesn’t appear to be gang-related…” Maybe she’s never been to the Mission before. Or maybe she means that there’s no definite proof that it’s gang-related. But as a neighbor, I have no trouble guessing, and I’m probably right, having had a fatal in front of my house not that long ago: gang-related.

    No human being is “trash”. Not in the Mission District or anywhere else.

    • Kritical

      Thank you. It’s thinking certain people are trash that let’s violence continue and cops off the hook for not doing their jobs.

    Similar to the old joke: let’s just give everyone guns so we can all just shoot ourselves into oblivion. When we’re all dead the problems will all be solved.

    I know the victim. This was not gamg related it was an attempted Robbery gone bad. Trust me, the victim is no punk and works with at risk youth. I hope they catch the cowards that did this.
