Five injured by shooting at bar in Mission district 

Five people were shot and injured, one critically, at a bar in the Mission district Monday, police said.

The shooting occurred around 11 p.m. at El Tin Tan bar at 3065 16th St., which is next door to popular Mexican restaurant Pancho Villa, police said.

The injured were Hispanic men between ages 26 and 42 years old, police said. Only one victim, a 36-year-old man, suffered life threatening injuries.

Police are investigating whether the shooting was gang related, spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said Tuesday.

There have been no arrests. The suspects were described only as Hispanic men in their early 20s. The suspects may have fled in a late model red Trans-Am and Chevy Caprice station wagon, police said.

The neighborhood is on high alert due to a recently ignited gang war. A graffiti incident sparked a spate of violence between Norteños and Sureños. During a two week period, there were four shootings and two stabbings in the district, including one fatality.

Anyone with information about the attack is asked to call the Police Department's anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411.
