A bullet grazed the face of a driver who was not the intended target of a drive-by shooting near the Lower Haight neighborhood early Friday, police said.

The 32-year-old man was reportedly stopped at a red light on Oak Street at Pierce Street at about 12:22 a.m. when the gunman drove up and opened fire on another vehicle that was also stopped at the light.

A bullet struck the driver who was targeted, a 22-year-old man, in the arm, and another “grazed the face” of the 32-year-old driver who was not involved, Officer Gordon Shyy said.

The suspects fled in a blue vehicle, Shyy said, and no arrests have been reported.

The 22-year-old man reportedly drove himself to the hospital, while the 32-year-old man stopped at the scene and waited for police.

Both victims were expected to survive the brazen attack.
