2 Drivers Shot Near San Francisco’s Alamo Square
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Two men were injured in a shooting near San Francisco’s Alamo Square early Friday morning, a police spokesman said.
The shooting was reported at 12:22 a.m. at Oak and Pierce streets.
The two victims, ages 20 and 32, were in separate cars traveling east on Oak Street and stopped at a red light at Pierce, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.
A passenger in another vehicle then opened fire at the 20-year-old, striking him in the arm. The 32-year-old was also struck and suffered facial injuries, either by a bullet fragment or shattered glass, Esparza said.
The 20-year-old victim drove himself to the hospital while the 32-year-old stopped at the scene and flagged down police in the area. Both victims’ injuries are not considered life-threatening, Esparza said.
The suspect vehicle, described only as a blue car, fled east on Oak Street after the shooting and has not been found. No other suspect information was immediately available, Esparza said.
Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the message.
