SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A man shot in his torso in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood Thursday is expected to survive, according to police.

The victim, a man in his 30s, was in the first block of Bryant Street when he was shot around 3:45 p.m., police said.

After that, a driver not injured in the shooting drove around with the victim looking for a hospital.

The driver flagged down a parking official at Mission and Main streets and asked for directions to a hospital, police said.

The two then stopped at Market and Main streets where the man in the passenger seat was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said.

The shooting suspect fled, possibly on foot, and was only described as a male, police said.
