SF: Teen arrested after Market Street shooting


A 15-year-old boy was arrested after a shooting on San Francisco’s Market Street on Monday night, police said Tuesday.

The shooting was reported at 10:23 p.m. near Market and Fifth streets.

Police said the boy got into an argument with a 25-year-old man, then took out a handgun and shot the man in the leg.

The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for his injuries, which are not considered life-threatening, police said.

Officers responded and arrested the boy, whose name is not being released because he is a juvenile, police spokesman Sgt. Dennis Toomer said.
