Friday shootout in Ingleside injures one, prompts building evacuation 

Two men were arrested Friday after an apparent midday shootout in Ingleside that sent one of the alleged gunmen to the hospital with a leg wound, police said.

Gunfire broke out near Brighton and Holloway avenues around 1:50 p.m., striking a car with at least one person in it, Officer Grace Gatpandan said. Police and a tactical unit responded to the scene — where the ground was littered with shell casings — evacuated a building on Brighton Avenue and arrested one person.

Michael Lewis, 25, was taken into custody in connection with the shooting. Witnesses told police some nine people were involved in the ruckus.

While officers canvased the area, someone walked into San Francisco General Hospital with a gunshot wound, Gatpandan said. The wounded man was later identified as 28-year-old Neil Lewis.

He was hospitalized in non-life threatening condition, but also arrested the next day in connection with the shooting.

“Just because you’re shot, doesn’t mean you didn’t shoot back,” Gatpandan said.

Both Michael Lewis and Neil Lewis were booked into County Jail on charges of assault with a firearm and carrying a loaded firearm in public, according to Gatpandan. They are still in custody with bail set at $175,000 each, according to the sheriff's department.
