Four shot Saturday in two separate Mission shootings 

Two shootings Saturday injured four people, including a girl, in the Mission district, though police said the incidents appeared unrelated to nearby Cinco de Mayo festivities.

While revelers partied in Dolores Park throughout the day, police were called at 5:30 p.m. to Mission and 19th streets, three blocks from the park, were two men were found shot.

“It was away from any Cinco de Mayo activities,” police spokesman Sgt. Daryl Fong said.

A man in his 30s who was grazed by a bullet in the upper body was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, and a man in his 20s who was shot in the arm was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital, according to Fong. Both were expected to survive, he said.

There were no arrests and no suspect description was made available.

At 10:15 p.m., police received calls about a shooting in the area of Natoma and Minna streets near 15th Street, and found a man in his 20s on the 1300 block of Natoma Street with a gunshot to the left arm, according to Fong.

The man was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries, Fong said.

At 3:15 a.m. Sunday, a juvenile female walked into San Francisco General Hospital with a gunshot wound to her left arm, believed to have been sustained during the same Natoma Street shooting incident, according to Fong. The girl’s injury was also described as nonlife-threatening.

No arrests were made but there was mention of a black vehicle being involved in the second shooting, Fong said.

The circumstances of both shootings are still under investigation, Fong said.

Anyone with information about either incident is asked to contact the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or text TIP411.
