Gunfire hours apart leaves two men dead 

Two men were pronounced dead within hours and blocks of each other early Sunday morning, after separate and seemingly unrelated shootings, San Francisco Police Sgt. Neville Gittens said.

The first shooting, which was a drive-by, occurred at 2:20 a.m., as a Hispanic male in his 20s was standing at the intersection of 13th and Folsom Streets, police said. He was shot numerous times in the chest and was pronounced dead at the scene.

At 3 a.m. — just four blocks away — a man described as a black male in his early 20s was found inside of a car at 17th and Mission Streets, also suffering from gunshot wounds to the chest. He was transported to San Francisco General Hospital where he was pronounced dead hours later, police said.

Both men were residents of San Francisco.

As of Sunday evening, no arrests had been made in connection with the two slayings.

Anyone with information is asked to call the San Francisco Police anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444.
