Two women were shot and another was pistol-whipped during an attempted robbery near San Francisco State University early Sunday morning, a police spokesman said today. The incident was reported at about 2:50 a.m. Sunday near Garfield and Byxbee streets in the city’s Merced Heights neighborhood, police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy said.
A suspect approached and pointed a gun at one of the victims and demanded her purse. A struggle ensued and the suspect struck her with the firearm and then shot her in the neck, Shyy said. The suspect then struggled with a second victim and shot her in the leg and then pistol-whipped the third victim before fleeing empty-handed, according to Shyy.
All three victims were transported to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for their injuries, which are not considered life-threatening, he said. The suspect was described only as a black man between 20 to 25 years old who was wearing a black puffy jacket. He had not been found as of this afternoon, Shyy said.
