Violent night in SF brings out sword, shootout 

A man was sliced with a sword and another was shot during a shootout between two vehicles as violence erupted on The City’s streets Monday night.

In all, three people were either shot or stabbed in separate incidents Monday night and Tuesday morning, though none suffered life-threatening injuries, San Francisco police said.

The shooting victim, a 36-year-old Hispanic man, was struck in the leg by a stray bullet in the Bayview after occupants in two cars opened fire on each other, police said. The shootout occurred around 6:30 p.m. Monday on the 1400 block of Palou Avenue, they said.

About three hours later, police responded to the 600 block of Webster Avenue, where they found a 22-year-old black man suffering stab wounds, police said.

Then, at 3:15 a.m. Tuesday, two people got into an argument on the 400 block of Minna Street, and one pulled out a sword and sliced a 39-year-old white man’s forearm, police said.

No arrests have been made in any of the incidents.
