A young man in his 20s was shot multiple times Friday at 7:10 p.m. as he walked on Treat Avenue toward 22nd Street. The shots were fired from a passing vehicle, police said.

“The victim was shot multiple times in his lower extremities,” said Officer Albie Esparza. The victim is being treated for non-life-threatening injuries. Police are not yet releasing his name.

A Mission Local reader wrote that the young man had been with a group of friends. She asked them to move their car, which was blocking her driveway.

“There was no problem, but the car drove away and the young kid walked down Treat towards 22nd Street and was shot five times,” she wrote.

She saw an orange Mustang speed away.

Esparza said other witnesses also described an orange car, but he added that there was conflicting information about the car. There is no description of the suspects.

Esparza asked that anyone with information call into an anonymous tip line at 415-575-4444.
