Physical fight led to Bayview shooting 

A physical fight ended in a spray of bullets and left on man in critical condition Saturday night in the Bayview neighborhood.

The shooting occurred just before midnight Saturday. San Francisco police responded to the intersection of Third Street and Galvez Avenue and found one man with “multiple gun shot wounds to his torso and back,” Officer Albie Esparza said.

The man was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Esparza said the man was shot after a physical altercation between him and another man escalated. The suspect pulled a gun out during the fight and shot the victim several times.

Esparza said it was unclear if the incident was gang related. The police are not aware of a motive for the shooting or what sparked the fight.

Police continue to investigate the incident. A suspect description was not released Sunday.
