Man expected to survive getting shot ‘numerous’ times near USF 

A 22-year-old San Francisco man is expected to recover despite having been shot “numerous times” late Monday near the University of San Francisco campus, police said.

Police said the victim “was shot numerous times ... while sitting in his car” at about 11:25 p.m. at Temescal Terrace and Turk Boulevard.

Police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said the victim drove himself to Geary Boulevard and Seventh Avenue, where he called police, and then continued on to the Richmond police station around the corner on Sixth Avenue where ambulances picked him up.

He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with at least five gunshot wounds to the torso, but the injuries were considered non-life-threatening, according to police.

Esparza said investigators found bullet casings strewn about the crime scene, and parked vehicles in the area were also hit by bullets.

A handgun-toting man believed responsible for the shooting is still on the loose, according to police.

Esparza said a gray vehicle was seen fleeing the scene.

The neighborhood has seen violence before. In December, a 21-year-old alleged pot dealer traded gunfire with four robbers who raided his home in the 2500 block of Golden Gate Avenue, police said.
