SAN FRANCISCO–On Tuesday, July 28, at around 6 p.m. a 43-year-old woman was shot near a homeless encampment.
The shooting occurred under a Highway 101 overpass, the woman in question has yet to be identified, but police indicated the victim was shot in the thigh. She was transported to the San Francisco General Hospital, but her injuries were reported as non-life threatening.
Witnesses told police that they saw six suspicious men in a black sedan driving by during the time of the shooting. Police are still uncertain whether this was a drive-by shooting or if the shooting occurred by a suspect on foot. There is also no indication, as of yet, whether or not the shooting was targeted or just random.
Police are having a hard time with this case because witnesses, who had initially been helpful, have started to become uncooperative. Police ask that if there is any more information that people contact them at (415) 837-7395 or text tip to Tip411 with the message beginning with SFPD.
