San Francisco police are investigating two unrelated shooting incidents in the city that happened within 10 minutes of each other Sunday morning and left six people hospitalized.

The first incident was a drive-by shooting reported at about 2 a.m. near the intersection of Mission Street and Excelsior Avenue, according to police.

Two men were fired upon by a suspect in a vehicle that then fled the scene.

The victims suffered gunshot wounds, but they are not believed to be life-threatening, police said.

Another shooting was reported at 2:07 a.m. and hospitalized four men, a 22-year-old, a 23-year-old, and two 29-year-olds, police said.

When the shooting at 500 Florida took place, the police were already on the scene. And still no arrests?
