Shooting seriously injures one in San Francisco’s Bayview, prompts closure of police station lobby

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A shooting in San Francisco’s Bayview District has injured one person on Friday afternoon, according to police Capt. Raj Vaswani.

Vaswani said on Twitter at around 12:20 p.m. that the shooting at Third Street and Fitzgerald Avenue left one victim with life-threatening injuries.

A 21-year-old man injured in the shooting drove up to the door of the Bayview Police Station to tell officers he had been shot, police said.

The lobby for the Bayview police station is also closed because of a second crime scene related to the shooting, Vaswani said.

The shooting was reported at about 10:30 a.m. when the victim drove his car onto the sidewalk in front of the police station at 201 Williams Ave. to say he had been shot in the upper torso, police spokesman Officer Carlos Manfredi said.

He was taken by medics to San Francisco General Hospital. Police initially said his injuries were considered life-threatening, but Manfredi said he is now expected to survive.

Northbound Third Street was closed in the area and San Francisco Municipal Railway buses were being diverted around the area, he said.

But Thrid Street is now open. The Bayview police station remains a secondary crime scene, Vaswani said.

The shots were allegedly fired from a dark sedan with three suspects inside. A detailed description of the suspects and vehicle was not immediately available, Manfredi said.

Anyone with information about the shooting is encouraged to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the message.
