Wednesday, December 15, 2010

Two men were wounded in separate shootings in San Francisco's Bayview and Potrero Hill neighborhoods Tuesday, police said.

At about 5:20 p.m., an 18-year-old man was shot in the leg near Keith Street and Thomas Avenue in the Bayview.

The man told police he heard a gunshot and then fell to the ground. His wounds were not believed to be life-threatening.

At about 9:45 p.m., a 20-year-old man was parking his car on 26th Street near Connecticut Street when someone approached him and shot him once in the back, police said.

The man's car rolled down the street and crashed into other parked cars before it came to rest, according to police.

The victim in that shooting, which is believed to be gang-related, is also expected to survive, police said.

No arrests have been made in either case.
