SAN FRANCISCO -- A man was critically injured when he was shot after allegedly kicking down trash cans and threatening another man outside a home in San Francisco's Bayview District on Tuesday night, police said.
The shooting was reported at 8:38 p.m. Tuesday after the 28-year-old victim allegedly kicked over several garbage cans in the 1100 block of Gilman Avenue, according to police.
When someone asked him to stop and go home, the victim allegedly walked to a house nearby, then came back to the person's house a few minutes later and began yelling and grabbing at his waistband, police said.
The 62-year-old father of the man being threatened then shot the victim once in the chest, and called police.

Police took the shooter into custody but had not yet released his name this morning.
