At around 2:55 a.m on Saturday, a 21-year-old man was shot on Mission Street between 17th and 18th streets. He was transported to the hospital in non-life-threatening condition.

At around 11:33 p.m. on Saturday, three males — two 17-year-old boys and one 20-year-old man — were shot at on Rosa Parks Lane and Guerrero Street. They were transported to the hospital in non-life-threatening condition. The three men were standing with a group when an unknown suspect drove by and shot at the group. The suspect fled the scene.
