A woman escaped injury Monday night when someone shot into her car in San Francisco’s Visitacion Valley neighborhood, just blocks from the scene of a double murder earlier that day, police said. The 37-year-old woman was driving near Sunnydale Avenue and Rey Street at about 10 p.m. when a white SUV came up from behind and passed her, according to police. Someone inside the SUV then opened fire on a group of people standing on the sidewalk, missing them but striking the woman’s vehicle.

No one was hit by the gunfire, police said. The SUV then drove off and had not been found as of this morning. The shooting occurred just a few blocks from where two men were fatally shot early Monday afternoon. At 1:12 p.m., officers responded to a report of a large fight on Burr Avenue near Argonaut Avenue. A minute later, police received reports that two people had been shot. The two victims, men believed to be in their early 20s, were taken to San Francisco General Hospital where they were pronounced dead.

Their names have not yet been released. No arrests have been made in connection with either shooting, and police have not said whether they believe the shooting on Monday night was related to the earlier deaths.
