Woman shot in back outside San Francisco house party 

A 21-year-old woman was badly wounded after being shot in the back outside a house party in the Mission district early Sunday morning, police said.

The shooting occurred at about 2:30 a.m. at 25th and Folsom streets, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

The victim had been standing on the sidewalk outside the party when she was hit by gunfire, according to Esparza. He said people attending the party drove her to San Francisco General Hospital, where her injuries were described as life-threatening.

No arrests were made, and the shooting is not believed to be gang-related at this time, Esparza said.

Two other shootings early Sunday morning wounded three people, according to police.

A 59-year-old man told police he had been walking in the 900 block of Anza Street — about two blocks west of the University of San Francisco’s Lone Mountain campus — at 12:10 a.m. when he heard a noise and realized he had been shot in the hand, Esparza said.

The man then drove himself to San Francisco General Hospital, where he was treated for a wound that was not considered life-threatening. There was no information on any suspects, and no arrests were made.

At 1:15 a.m., two males were riding a Muni bus at Arleta and San Bruno avenues in Visitacion Valley when someone outside the bus opened fire, hitting both victims, Esparza said.

One of the males was hit in the neck and the other in the hand, he said. Both were hospitalized with injuries that were not considered life-threatening, and no arrests were made.
