Teenager shot with pellet gun, robbed while waiting for Muni 

A teenage boy waiting at a Muni bus stop near the Sunnydale housing projects May 18 was shot and robbed by a group of men.

The incident took place near Santos Street and Velasco Avenue at 9 p.m. Initially, two men snuck up behind the 16-year-old and pinned his arms behind his back and belted him with closed fists. They robbed the boy of his cellphone and baseball cap.

But before the men fled in a car that arrived during the attack, another man popped up through the vehicle’s sunroof and took aim at the boy with a pellet rifle.

The boy was shot twice. He was admitted to UCSF Mission Bay Children’s Hospital with injuries to his head, ribs and stomach. The injuries were not life-threatening.

Police did not get a detailed description of the suspects or the getaway car.
