SAN FRANCISCO—Two unidentified male victims were shot multiple times at a bus stop in the Mission District. The incident occurred at approximately 11:48 p.m. on Monday, September 7. San Francisco police officers are reviewing footage gathered from surveillance tapes in an attempt to find the person(s) responsible for firing at the two male victims.
The victims, ages 36 and 55, were taken to the San Francisco General Hospital after being attacked near the intersection of Mission and 24th Street, adjacent to the 24th/Mission BART station. One victim was struck in the leg, the other was shot in the chest, leg and foot.
The glass shelter covering the bus stop area was shattered while the men were inside the area. A neighboring dental clinic also reported multiple damages to their windows from the shooting. Two vehicles were also reported to have been struck by bullets nearby the scene of the incident.
The SFPD is still investigating whether the victims were targets of a potential gang-related motive. Police believe that the 36-year-old victim was shot by suspects as an intended target, and the older victim was shot unintentionally.
Based on the footage from three separate video surveillance cameras set up around BART and Muni, police say they are looking for at least two suspects from their collected evidence.
Both victims are currently being treated for non-life-threatening injuries and are in stable condition.
Anyone with information regarding the shooting is encouraged to call the San Francisco Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” at the beginning of the message.
