Update 10/11/16: The victim’s injuries are now described as life-threatening.

Police report a shooting Sunday night injured a 13-year-old boy, who was transported to the hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said the incident occurred at 6:35 p.m. at 26th and Valencia streets. No arrests have yet been made and no suspect information was available. Witnesses told police two men were walking back and forth in the area before one shot was heard. An unidentified male suspect was last seen running eastbound on 26th St.

Though police offered no details about events leading up to the shooting, others indicate it may have developed out of an altercation at a nearby mortuary.

A vigil was held at Driscoll’s Valencia Street Serra Mortuary, at 1465 Valencia St., for Fidel Amezcua, the 29-year-old man who was shot on the corner of 24th and  Shotwell streets in June and succumbed to his injuries on October 1. A staff member at the mortuary said a fight broke out during the service around 6:30 p.m., which moved around the corner on 26th Street, where a shooting took place. It is unclear what motivated the altercation.

Mission Station’s Special Investigations Team is investigating, a police spokesperson said, and the Gang Task Force was notified.

Another shooting occurred over the weekend at Alabama Street and Precita Avenue, sending two to the hospital, one in life-threatening condition.
