Man killed, woman seriously injured in Mission District shooting

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) - Authorities are investigating a double shooting in San Francisco's Mission District early Monday that left a man dead and a woman with life-threatening injuries.

Around 1 a.m. officers responded to 16th and Valencia on a report of shots fired where they located the two victims.

At the scene, they found both victims in the road and were taken to local hospitals, where the man later died and the woman was last listed in life-threatening condition. 

Police say the woman is 55-years-old.

The nature of the relationship between the two victims is unclear and at this time there is no information being released about possible suspects or motive.

People on the block said that police were out looking for surveillance video.

No arrests have been made and police have not released any suspect information at this time.

One man who frequents the area was not particularly surprised about the early morning violence but says he's exhausted by it.

“It's awful, I think it's a crying shame that these types of things are still happening around here," the local said. "We've got to start working together to have to have things like this not happen so simple and so easily.”

Just a few miles away on Mission Street and Geneva Avenue, a 16-year-old boy identified as Josue Meija Sanchez was stabbed by at least three suspects.

It happened around 10 p.m. on Saturday night.

Two other men, aged 38 and 48 suffered non-life-threatening injuries in that knife attack.

Police say they do not know what led up to that deadly encounter.

While these murders happened just days apart, the city's homicide rate so far in 2018 stands at 43 which is well below the total number of murders in 2017 at 56.

Anyone with information is asked to call the SFPD tip line at 415-575-4444 or Text a Tip to TIP 411.
