A man was injured in a shooting near San Francisco’s Dolores Park on Tuesday afternoon, police said. The shooting was reported at about 2 p.m. Tuesday in an alley near the park, which is bounded by 18th and 20th streets and Dolores and Church streets. The 22-year-old victim met a female who drove him to the alley, where two male suspects appeared and demanded money, according to police. The man handed over cash to the suspects, who began to run away.
The victim chased after them, at which point one of the suspects turned and fired at him, striking him once, police said. The victim was taken to a hospital to be treated for his injuries, which are not considered life-threatening. The two suspects fled and had not been found as of this morning. Police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said he does not know whether the female was an innocent bystander or was an accessory to the crime.
