Shooting in Fisherman’s Wharf was gang-related, police say 

A known gang member was shot at Fisherman’s Wharf on Wednesday after an altercation flared up between two groups of people, police said.

One shot was fired in the 300 block of Jefferson Street, between Leavenworth and Jones streets, around 10 p.m.

The victim, a 20-year-old Hispanic man, suffered a bullet wound to the thigh, San Francisco police Sgt. Daryl Fong said. The victim is currently at San Francisco General Hospital in stable condition, he said.

The incident appears to be gang-related, Fong said. Police said the victim was on the street with a group of people who apparently started a verbal confrontation with another group nearby. One member of the other group pulled out a gun and fired a single shot, police said.

Witnesses pointed out three suspects to police. Two were taken into custody but later released when it was determined they were not involved, Fong said.

The victim has not been cooperative with police, the police spokesman added.
