A 20-year-old man was shot at but not injured Monday around 11:10 p.m. in front of Bernal Dwellings, a housing complex at Cesar Chavez and Harrison streets.

The victim was walking down the street when the two men, whose descriptions police have not provided, used a handgun to fire “several shots” at him.

One person was arrested, but it’s unclear who — the two suspects fled, according to a report from police, and a call placed to SFPD was not immediately returned.

Woman intervenes in robbery

A man in his 40s stole some t-shirts from a store at 23rd and Mission streets just before 5 p.m. Monday, police say, and was nearly thwarted by a 60-year-old woman.

The man walked into the store at around 4:44 p.m, holding a knife at his side. He initially took a sweatshirt, but the woman in the store grabbed it from him when he tried to walk out without paying. Yet the man, steadfast in his hunt for free apparel, took some t-shirts and ran away northbound on Mission Street, before the woman could get to him again.

No injuries were reported, and no arrest has been made.
