SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A 31-year-old Uber driver from Sacramento suffered injuries to his face early in the morning on Christmas Eve when a suspect shot through his windshield in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley, according to police.
Officers responded to a shot-spotter activation around 3 a.m. Saturday in the vicinity of Oak and Buchanan streets.
They found the victim at Gough and Oak streets with injuries that weren’t thought to be life-threatening.
He told investigators that he’d been waiting for a passenger on Oak Street when an unidentified man fired a shot through the windshield. They noticed that the glass had been damaged in a manner consistent with gunfire, police said.
The victim drove away before stopping several blocks down Oak Street to call 911, police said.
Uber responded to the incident on Monday evening, stating: “The individual reported this to us directly through the (Uber) app and we’ve been in contact with him over the weekend. We’re very relieved he is OK.”
A suspect description was not immediately available and no arrests have been made, according to police.
