Mission district shooting injures one, possibly gang related 

A shooting in the Mission district that seriously wounded a 32-year-old man on Sunday may have been gang related, police said.

The victim suffered multiple bullet wounds in the back while running for dear life from the gun-toting thug at 26th and Harrison streets. The shooting was reported at 9:15 p.m.

Officers found the victim lying on the sidewalk, police spokesman Sgt. Carlos Manfredi said. He was transported to San Francisco General Hospital.

According to a witness, the gunman, armed with a semi-automatic handgun, fled in a waiting car before cops arrived. As of Monday morning, no arrests had been made, police said. Further details about the shooting investigation were not being released Monday.

It was the second brazen Mission shooting in five days. A man was shot in the thigh as he crossed 16th and Mission streets Wednesday. There has been no arrest in that case. Police say the 31-year-old victim in that case claims  he did not see who shot him.
