San Francisco police are asking for the public’s help in finding a man who shot a donut store owner during a robbery attempt early Monday and was wounded himself — possibly critically — when the owner stabbed him. The incident was reported at about 3 a.m. at the Happy Donut at 2600 Bayshore Blvd., near Sunnydale Avenue, in the city’s Visitacion Valley neighborhood, police said.

The suspect entered the shop and demanded money from a female employee at the cash register. The owner heard the commotion and came out from the back of the store to find the suspect armed with a gun, according to police. The owner grabbed a knife and a struggle ensued, during which the owner was shot in the arm and the suspect was stabbed in the upper torso, police said. The suspect fled and has not sought medical attention at any nearby hospitals for his injuries, which police believe may be life-threatening.

The owner was taken to San Francisco General Hospital in stable condition. The suspect is described as a black man between 30 and 40 years old who is bald, about 5 feet 8 to 5 feet 10 inches tall with a thin build. He was last seen wearing all-black clothing and has stab wounds to his upper torso, police said.
