Police report a 20-year-old man suffered gunshot wounds on his leg and foot on Saturday night after he got into an argument with another man, estimated to be 19 years old. The argument, which took place around 2:30 p.m. on Kamille Court between Treat Avenue and Harrison Street, escalated and the younger man pulled out a handgun and shot the other man. The victim was transported to the hospital in non-life-threatening condition, but the suspect was not arrested. The matter is pending further investigation, according to the police crime recap.
Saturday’s shooting was followed by two incidents in which shots were fired but nobody was injured early Sunday morning.
According to a Mission Local reader, a driver passing through Shotwell Street between 24th and 25th streets fired at least two shots out of the window around 1:30 a.m. on Sunday morning, leaving one bullet hole each in cars parked on either side of the street.
Half an hour later, shots were reported to police on 15th Street between Mission Street and Julian Avenue. A 30-year-old man told police he was drinking in front of his apartment with a few others when a dark four-door vehicle drove by the group. As the car drove by, the victim heard shots being fired from within, which prompted him to flatten himself to the ground. The car then drove eastbound along 15th street. The man did not see the shooter, but officers who arrived on scene were able to collect bullet fragments. No one was injured.
Police also report that at 7:11 a.m. on Saturday, three men attacked a 32-year-old man with a pipe on Florida Street between Mariposa and 17th streets. The suspects struck the victim in the head before fleeing on foot, taking nothing but leaving the man with a fractured skull. The victim was transported to the hospital for surgery, and is recovering. No arrest was made.
Car Chase Ends in the Mission
ABC7 reports an incident that began when officers received a call about a driver crashing into other cars in the Bayview and turned into a car chase. On Mission and Valencia streets, the driver reportedly lost a wheel and was apprehended by police, though it’s unclear what the woman’s motives were.
A 32-year-old man was walking toward his car near Folsom and 21st streets at 11:02 a.m. on Saturday, when two men in their 30s approached him. One of the men pulled out a knife and the pair attacked the victim. The man with the knife grabbed the victim’s car keys, and both suspects then fled with the victim’s car. The victim was left with pain in his face and body but refused medical attention.
A 40-year-old man was standing on the corner of 16th and Mission streets at 11:00 p.m. on Sunday when he was hit in the face by an unknown suspect. The man lost consciousness, and woke up with a bruised head and a cut over his eye, and his wallet missing. No arrest was made.
