At 10:15 last night my wife and I were watching a noisy action movie in the front room when seven shots were fired close by. We hit the floor, but when nothing else happened — I didn’t hear any car zooming away, if indeed the shooter escaped via a car, because it took me a minute to shut off the noisy movie — I looked outside while calling 911. The strange thing is that all was quiet for about three minutes, and then
some female screaming started. The cops started pouring into the block about a minute later. Even though I couldn’t see any details, it was clear that someone had been hit, because the whole block was blocked off for a couple of hours and the cops were going around putting down those numbered yellow evidence cones. I don’t see any news about it yet this morning but given the spate of recent shootings I wouldn’t be surprised if the Chronicle has something soon.
Anyone else hear or see it?
Update: SF Appeal has the story:
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.
