Man Shot in Leg Refuses to Cooperate With Police

A man was waiting in line to buy food inside a store at Mission and 20th streets at 2:10 p.m. on Tuesday when a suspect, described as man between the ages of 23 and 26, approached him from behind and snatched the necklace from his neck.

No arrests have been made.

A man and a woman were robbed at 24th and Mission streets at 5:50 p.m. on Tuesday. The suspects, eight male teenagers between the ages of 17 and 20, walked up to one of the victims, took his wallet, then beat him. The second victim tried to stop them but they took her purse and fled on foot.

No arrests have been made.

A 24-year-old man was taken to San Francisco General Hospital shortly after midnight on Wednesday with a gunshot wound to the leg. Police were called but the man refused to tell them what happened.

Officer Gordon Shyy told Mission Local that the man drove himself home to South San Francisco after he was shot. He said that a friend drove him to the hospital at about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Residents reported hearing gunshots fired in the area of 18th and 19th streets, between Valencia and Dolores, at about midnight. Police are investigating the incident and are asking anyone with information to call the SFPD.

    I see these little gang bangers all over the place in the evening. It’s disgusting how no one ever helps in those situations. I mean come on, you know that corner is filled with people. The problem is that I’ve come to find out most people loitering on the corners of the mission are usually up to no good. Walk fast, be aware, and don’t linger. That’s my advice. Good luck to all the good people in The Mission.

      It’s amazing to me how much crime happens on or near that corner during commute hours. A little bit of police presence would be nice. Norteño gang members are dealing drugs out of that cafe that’s on 24th and Osage alley—it’s so blatant and no one does a thing.

    stupid kids. all the trouble in the mission seems to be committed by idiot kids between 17 and 25 years of age. They are the problem. What is the solution?

    Scumbags all. As for guy who is not cooperating with the police, arrest him for aiding & abetting criminals. Why no description of these lowlifes? The Mission is the garbage dump of SF.

    @pamela first of all check yourself, who the ones trying move in the Mission, you white folks want to live here! And you can’t arrest no one if they ain’t cooperating with the police, because the police ain’t helping no minority, only white people, so shut up.
    @safestreets tell your people to stop gentrifying our community with your fancy condos, and start helping our youngster, so you won’t complain as much! Stop kicking our people out, and start helping, thats the solution .
    @jaime I mean no one said nothing because no one is snitching on the police, or else they get hurt, thats just how it is in the ghetto. If you want to live in the Mission, deal with, our people grow up to this type of environment, and makes these little kids think its cool to hang out in the corner, and our youngster ain’t stupid, just ignorant, maybe if the gang went from self-destructive to self-productive we will be aigth, but till than, I Guess more crimes will happen. Yal have to start helping us so, we can better our community.
    @anothy I agree, but shit white people have it good, its latinos/and blacks and others minorities who REALLY have to be safe.

      Maybe the youngsters should start helping themselves! No one is going to want to help them till then. What a thought.

      • Blurpy

        Those troubled youngsters are products of bad parenting. Don’t have kids if you aren’t capable of properly rearing them. That goes for anyone, of any race and economic status.

    It’s funny how judgmental everyone is of people they’ve never met
