San Francisco police arrest suspect in weekend Tenderloin shooting 

Police arrested an Oakland man within two blocks of a Tenderloin shooting Saturday that critically injured a 45-year-old man and wounded a 70-year-old innocent bystander.

Gunfire erupted in the 400 block of Ellis Street around 7:40 p.m. Cops swiftly responded to the area and took 20-year-old Aaron Spencer into custody nearby, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

The cops recovered the weapon allegedly used in the shooting, Esparza said.

The condition of the 45-year-old victim, who was targeted in the shooting, was not immediately known. The 70-year-old was shot in the foot and is expected to survive.

Spencer was booked on suspicion of attempted murder, firearm offenses, a parole hold and possession of crack cocaine, police said.

He does not have a prior arrest history in San Francisco, Esparza said. He was on parole out of Alameda County, he said.

Police have not established a motive in the shooting.
