Man Critically Injured In Visitacion Valley Shooting

SF Police Arrest Teen In Suspected Gang Shooting


San Francisco police arrested a 17-year-old boy Thursday evening for shooting a man in an apparent gang-related incident.

The shooting took place at about 5 p.m. in the 200 block of Hahn Street near the intersection with Sunnydale Avenue, an area close to the city's southern border known for gang activity, according to police.

The name of the boy, who is believed by police to be a member of one of the local street gangs in the area, was not released because he is a juvenile.

Police spokesman Sgt. Wilfred Williams would only say the shooting "appears to be gang-related." A motive was not known, he said.

The shooting left a 46-year-old man with multiple gunshot wounds.

He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries that were considered life threatening.

The boy was arrested about two hours later, Williams said.
