A man was shot in the foot during a fight in San Francisco’s Excelsior District late Saturday night, police said today.
The shooting was reported at 11:36 p.m. Saturday near Mission Street and Geneva Avenue.
The 19-year-old victim was part of a group that got into a fight with another group. The fight allegedly started because someone in the group was wearing a red shirt, according to police.
A suspect pulled out a gun and opened fire, striking the victim in the foot. He was taken to a hospital to be treated for his injuries, which were not life-threatening, police said.
The suspects, described as men in their 20s or 30s, fled and had not been found as of this morning.
Anyone with information about the shooting is encouraged to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411.
