San Francisco Man Suffers Serious Injuries In Paintball Gun Attack

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A man suffered a life-threatening head injury early Monday when he was shot with a paintball gun in San Francisco’s Outer Mission neighborhood, police said.

The shooting was reported in the 5800 block of Mission Street shortly after midnight, according to police.

The 33-year-old victim was taken to a hospital after being found shot in the head with a paintball gun. Police did not immediately release any information about a possible suspect and said there were no witnesses.

The shooting is not the first in San Francisco this year involving a paintball gun.

On May 19, a 55-year-old man was shot by a suspect in a white sedan with tinted windows around 12:35 a.m. on Mission Street near Cortland Avenue.

In that incident, one of two suspects in the vehicle tried to engage the man in conversation, but when he ignored them, a suspect shot him in the eye with a paintball gun.

The victim suffered a cut to his eye socket and was unable to see out of his eye, according to police.
