SAN FRANCISCO—At around 11:40 p.m. on Tuesday, May 19, officers from the San Francisco Police Department’s Tenderloin Station responded to a report of an armed robbery that took place on the 1200 block of Mission Street in the South of Market (SoMa) neighborhood.

According to a statement from SFPD Public Information Officer Adam Lobsinger, four unknown male suspects, possibly in their early to mid-20s, approached two men, ages 21 and 36, pointed a firearm at them prompting the victims to run away. The victims last saw the four perpetrators fleeing southbound on 10th Street towards Mission Street.

Once the robbers were out of view, the victims reportedly heard gunshots coming from the area of 10th Street and Mission Street.

A 53-year old male later told authorities that he was shot by four suspects on the 1300 block of Mission Street.

Officers from the SFPD Southern and Tenderloin Station found used shell casings and other evidence near the location of the crime.

With life-threatening injuries, the victim reportedly drove himself from the scene of the crime to the Van Ness Campus of the California Pacific Medical Center hospital at 1101 Van Ness Avenue.

According to Lobsinger, at about 11:49 p.m., officers responded to a call from the Van Ness medical facility where they met with the shooting victim.

Updates on the patient’s condition were not released to the San Francisco News due to privacy laws.

No arrests have been made in relation to the robbery and shooting, which investigators are investigating if there is a connection. The SFPD Robbery Detail has taken over the case, which is ongoing.

Lobsinger told the San Francisco News, “Anyone with information is asked to call the SFPD 24 Hour Tip Line at 1-415-575-4444 or Text a Tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with SFPD.”
