(05-04) 10:03 PDT SAN FRANCISCO -- Two men were shot and killed within a 30-minute period Saturday night in separate shootings in San Francisco, police said.
At 10:15 p.m., police said, a 32-year-old Oakland man was gunned down on the 1600 block of Geary Boulevard outside the Japan Center in the city's Japantown neighborhood, which is typically busy on weekend nights.
The man, whose name will not be released until his family is notified, ran across the street, collapsed, and was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics, police said.
Half an hour later, a shooting on the 1000 block of Connecticut Street in the Potrero Hill neighborhood killed Victor Carson, a 41-year-old city resident, according to police and the medical examiner's office.
Carson, shot in the neck, was rushed by ambulance to nearby San Francisco General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
No arrests have been made in either homicide, police said.
