A San Francisco man was shot in the Mission district Sunday night and rushed to a hospital with life-threatening injuries, a police sergeant said.

The 27-year old man was sitting in a car in the 1500 block of Alabama Street at Cesar Chavez at around 10:20 p.m. when suspects approached, shot the victim multiple times, and then drove away, Sgt. Mike Andraychak said.

Police had no suspect or vehicle description as of 2 a.m. this morning but believe it could be gang related and are asking witnesses to come forward.

They are urging anyone with information to call the department’s gang task force at (415) 553-1401 or the anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444.

Weekend killings raise San Francisco homicide toll to 15 so far this year

The frigid weekend concluded with two fatal shootings and a stabbing that left a man struggling to stay alive, propelling The City’s homicide count to at least 15 this year.

San Francisco Police Department

The most recent killing happened around 7:40 p.m. Saturday. Police found Aldo Hernandez, 25, dead with gunshot wounds in the driver’s seat of what was thought to be his own car near the Potrero Hill Recreation Center.

Hernandez was found near Dakota and 23rd streets, Sgt. Mike Andraychak said. He appeared to be the “intended target,” he said.

That discovery came two hours after a shooting at 25th and Connecticut streets, which is believed to be unrelated. The victim, a man in his 50s, is expected to survive.
