A shooting late in the evening in the Bayview district capped a bloody Saturday in The City in which five people were injured by gunfire and one by a stabbing.
About 11:25 p.m. police found a man in his 20s in the first block of Harbor Road who had been shot in his torso. He was hospitalized in critical condition. Two suspects in the incident remain at large, Officer Gordon Shyy said.
Earlier Saturday, about 1:30 p.m., police responded to a shooting in the 1100 block of Palou Avenue in the Bayview. A witness told officers three victims had driven themselves to a hospital. Two women and one man were shot, police said, but their ages and condition were not available.
In both incidents, detailed descriptions of the suspects were not provided.
The shooter in the Saturday afternoon incident reportedly fled on foot down Harbor Road, then took off in a white car driven by another man.
Shyy said it was unknown whether the two shootings were gang-related or had any other connections, although they happened within five blocks of each other.
Earlier Saturday, another shooting took place, this time in the Tenderloin.
A security guard at a nightclub in the 400 block of Mason Street was shot in the leg, Shyy said. The guard, 27, had been letting people out of the club about 3:30 a.m. when he heard multiple gunshots and realized he had been hit. He was hospitalized but the injury was not considered life-threatening. Witnesses told police a blue convertible sped away southbound on Mason Street after the incident, Shyy said.
Police also were investigating a stabbing that happened in the 1000 block of Market Street about 9:45 p.m. Saturday. In that incident, the victim was stabbed in his upper body and hospitalized for his injury. As of Saturday, police did not have information on the severity of his injury.
The suspect in the stabbing was described by police as a black man in his 40s to 50s, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt that fled the scene eastbound on Market Street.
