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.

San Francisco — A man was stabbed and seriously wounded while walking home in San Francisco’s Mission District early today, and another man was shot to death on a nearby street corner a half hour later, police said.

Officers had no evidence that the two attacks were related, said Sgt. Mike Andraychak, a police spokesman. He said the police Gang Task Force was investigating both incidents.

The stabbing was reported about 1:50 a.m. near 16th and Mission streets. The victim, a 28-year-old San Francisco man, had just left a bar and was walking home when four men in their early 20s confronted him, then stabbed him repeatedly and ran off, Andraychak said.

He said the victim told police in the hospital that the attackers were gang members who apparently mistook him for a member of a rival gang.

About 2:20 a.m., a 24-year-old man was shot near the corner of 17th and Mission, Andraychak said. He was pronounced dead in the hospital at 4 a.m.

Witnesses saw a black SUV-type vehicle leaving the scene after the shooting, Andraychak said. He said police had no information about the reasons for the shooting and have made no arrests in either case.
