Drive-By Shooting Injures Man In The Mission



A 19-year-old San Francisco man was injured in a shooting in the city's Mission District this morning, less than 24 hours after and about nine blocks away from where two men were fatally shot Thursday, police said.

The teenage man was walking west on 23rd Street at Treat Avenue in a group of four when at least one suspect in an unknown vehicle traveling south on Treat Avenue shot at the group at about 4:45 a.m., San Francisco police Sgt. Wilfred Williams said.

The 19-year-old was struck with gunfire and transported to San Francisco General Hospital. He is expected to survive his injuries, Williams said.

The three others in the group were not injured, according to Williams.

Police are investigating whether the shooting was gang-related, Williams said. No suspects have been arrested.

The double-homicide Thursday night, which marked the fifth and sixth murders in the Mission District in the past two weeks and the 10th and 11th homicides so far this year in that area, claimed the lives of San Mateo County resident Matthew Solomon, 23, and Noel Espinoza, 19, of San Francisco, according to police.

Solomon and Espinoza were shot by two men with handguns at about 9:45 p.m. Thursday at 24th and Utah streets, according to police. A woman who was with them was also shot and survived.

The suspects then fled in a silver minivan, police said.

No arrests have been made in the case.
