Police are investigating a shooting in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood this morning that left a man with life-threatening injuries, a police lieutenant said. The victim, who is in his 40s, was shot near his left ear in the 400 block of Sixth Street at about 7:35 a.m., Lt. Troy Dangerfield said. Police suspect the man was shot unintentionally as he was walked
by three other men who were arguing at the corner of Sixth and Minna streets, Dangerfield said.
The man was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, he said. The suspects might have fled in a vehicle, but police do not have descriptions of any of them, Dangerfield said. Officers are at the scene interviewing witnesses and asking nearby businesses for any surveillance video footage, he said. Stevie Garcia, who lives upstairs from where the shooting happened, said she heard three shots this morning. When she looked out her window, she saw a police officer wrapping the victim’s head in gauze. Garcia said shootings in the area are fairly common, but not usually at that time of day.
