Police found a 21-year-old man suffering from gunshot wounds near 23rd and Alabama streets at 2:40 a.m. on Saturday. He was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Police also reported shots fired at 20th and Alabama about an hour before they found the man. It’s unclear if the incidents are related.

“At this point, nothing has been confirmed in terms of the incidents being related, but we have not ruled that out,” said SFPD spokesperson Officer Robert Rueca. 

No arrests have been made, as the suspects are unknown.

Following the incident, neighbors took to Nextdoor.com and said the shots sounded as though they were fired from a semi-automatic gun. One man who lives on 24th and Alabama streets reported that he awoke that morning to find that a “gunshot through my window.”

Others living near 21st and Alabama found bullet holes in two vehicles on their block.
