Two men were shot and one of them killed near 24th and Harrison streets on Wednesday, police said.
The victims, whose identities are unknown at this time, were approached at around 6 p.m. by two men who shot them. One of the men died at the scene while the other was taken to San Francisco General Hospital. His condition was not immediately disclosed, but according to police Sgt. Matt Rodgers, he was being treated for a gunshot wound to the foot.
Wednesday’s killing was the third homicide in the Mission in the last eight days. Jose Escobar was shot and killed early Saturday morning on 16th Street. Caesar Chuc, a cook at Serpentine Restaurant, died this weekend from injuries he sustained when a group of suspects attacked him on Valencia Street the previous Tuesday.
SF Appeal also reports that late last night, three men did a drive-by shooting at an officer:
At about 1:30 a.m., a San Francisco police officer was shot at multiple times from a moving vehicle that had three possible suspects inside.
The officer avoided being in the line of fire, police said.
The officer pursued the suspect vehicle and three suspects jumped from the vehicle in the 2500 block of Bryant Street, which is near 23rd street, police said.
The officer captured and arrested one suspect, police said.
Stay safe, everyone.
